it's interesting that no drivers have been posted for either the 3000 j115 desktop or the y510 notebook.

I've tried openSUSE 10.3, Ubuntu 7.10, and Mandriva 2008.1.
 
For openSUSE, update to the latest SUSE kernel and Xorg 7.3 if you want Compiz-Fusion. Everything should work properly except sound, bluetooth, and wireless (and sometimes ethernet.. sometimes).
 
For Ubuntu, also like openSUSE but I didn't try to get Compiz to work. Also same problem with sound, bluetooth, and wireless.
 
For Mandriva, EVERYTHING works. Except sound, bluetooth, and wireless.
 
See, the problem is always sound and wireless and the solution for ALL distro is simple:
 
After you upgrade to the latest Alsa (Mandriva's already good), do this: press Fn-F1 to suspend the notebook and then press anything else to wake it up. Once awoke, press Fn-F5 to enable wireless and Fn-F6 for bluetooth. Sound will also work after suspend.
 
I think the wake-up script does something to enable these keys and so also enable these functions. For more info, see my investigation at http://blog.syafril.com/?p=38. I suspect if I can copy parts of the script used for wake up and put it somewhere during boot, maybe it will work every boot instead of having to suspend after booting. The problem is, I don't know WHICH script to get from and WHERE to put in boot.
