Fedora 10 mostly worked out of the box. The brightness controls were reversed until the latest updates were applied. Sound works, but I still don't have the volume buttons working. Compiz, ethernet, wi-fi all work fine. I haven't tried the SD card reader or the express card slot.
A recent Ubuntu should be a cinch.

I've found a great driver that fixes some problems running Ubuntu on SL300: http://github.com/tetromino/lenovo-sl-laptop/tree/master
And here is an excellent guide to that driver: http://gianlucamagalotti.wordpress.com/2009/02/16/lenovo-thinkpad-sl-series-hotkeys/
