You have my sympathies. I have a presario 2110. Basically the same thing.

Its been a long hard struggle.

I'm running mandrake 9.2 and so far, to get ACPI working, I had to upgrade to 2.6 (I used the rpm...I still can't get the source to compile) this gave me battery monitor, button power-down, I'm still trying to figure out suspend/restore (IF it works).

Next after that is the 3D acceleration.
