Elive Gem works greatly on that laptop, only problem is non-functioning hibernate function. I use Asus WL-167g USB wifi adapter that works for me only after manually start it with little script. It seems that dhcp doesnt work with the adapter.

2 updates:

1. I upgraded my RAM from 256 to 768MB and now suspend from testing e17 started to work correctly

2. I solved problem with wifi: network-admin creates file /etc/network/interfaces with commands like:
iwconfig wlan0 wireless-essid myid
iwconfig wlan0 wireless-key xxxxxxxxxx
and it doesnt function. But when I change that commands like this:
pre-up iwconfig wlan0 essid myid
pre-up iwconfig wlan0 key xxxxxxxxxx
then it works flawlessly - I am connected automatically after boot.

I know that in some case there are problems with hibernate because of a too small swap. Normally 1.5 to 2 x ram is recommended. For hibernate 2 GB should be OK.
