No, but you need a modeline.  Have a look at my home page (URL in the
signature) and you'll find notes for installing FC3 on a very similar
notebook.  The X modeline will probably work for you.

Mine doesn't have wireless, but I suspect it's a Broadcom card, which
means using ndiswrapper or so (and tainting your kernel while at that)
to use proprietary drivers.  I've googled a bit while trying to find
solutions to other problems I ran into, and a number of people had
recipes to get the card working, unfortunately none of them built into
FC.  There's an r3000 mailing list where people discuss all sorts of
GNU/Linux issues on HP notebooks.  I don't have the URLs handy, but
that's what search engines are for :-)
