(sorry to take this even farther off topic, but...)
I have Ubuntu 9.10 running on my Portege R100, and it works quite well. I
installed over netboot (a few versions ago, probably 8.04), the display works
good (although you need a vga= kernel cmdline param to keep it in 1024x768 all
the time), and the Intel 802.11b WiFi works great (much better than in
Windows). Haven't found an SD card driver though.
