Linux runs rather well on the Fujitsu-Siemens Lifebook P1510 laptop/tablet PC. Here are some details.
IPW2200 WLAN: Works
Bluetooth: Works
RTL8139 LAN: Works
Internal display: Works
External display: Works, details
Sound: Works
Touchscreen: Works, details
Tablet buttons: Work, get this driver
Fingerprint reader: Doesn't work, I don't know of a driver
SD card reader: Works
Suspend to disk: Works (Tux on Ice)
Suspend to memory: Doesn't work, but haven't tried it in a long time
The P1510 doesn't have an optical drive, so it's probably easiest to boot the installer through the network. You can consult this HOWTO, if necessary.
