I have a EEEPC 901.  Mostly using it for thin client development where 
it is proving to be extremely useful, but it would be nice to get 100% 
Fedora running on this in portable mode.
There is some discussion here of some patch to make it build and work on 

I hear vague mention that somebody is working on something to get this 
chipset supported upstream but I have no idea where or who.
