You probably don't need drivers for most of those things. As the Asus s96s is a Centrino machine, there should be enough built in to the most recent Fedora release for it to work right away. Touchpads, too, are very standard, and I'd be surprised if you had trouble with that.

Linux doesn't need drivers the way Windows does... just give it a shot, and it'll probably work fine.
