Linux on Acer Aspire 1501 LCE

I want buy a Laptop: Acer Aspire 1501 LCE. Processor AMD Athlon 64 3000+, ATI Mobility Radeon 9600, Chipset VIA Apollo K8T800, Front Side Bus 800 MHz.
May someone tell me if Red Hat Fedora is working cool on that Processor?
Or if that processor is a not good processor for Linux ?

I have a Medion 40653 with the same processor. I tried installing both Mandrake 9.2 AMD64 and Suse 9.0 for AMD64 and I couldn't get ACPI working with either. As I like to know how much power is left in the battery, as well as what temp my processor is running at, I gave up on these two. I am now running Slackware 9.1 (for 32 bit processors) and I have PowerNow, ACPI & cpufreq working just fine.
