i had no problems in using averatec laptops with linux, it's the case of 3250 series. the only problem i ever had was under fedora wich needs to edit the xorg config file and switch to vesa video driver. if you whant something really easy to use try mandriva limited edition, it worked just fine for me. currently i'm using a debian on it (with a custom kernel and an open source driver for Ralink wireless) but to be onest i still use the vesa driver for video, so i don't have 3d acceleration, wich can be a pain in the butt when watching video.

SO what's wrong with the via driver? All the googling I do on the matter points to it. Yet X freaks.... I use the vesa too, only problem I have is watching dvd's with MPlayer in a small screen...
