I've got (well, mostly, in for repairs of the fan) a
centrino laptop, the in-kernel support covered everything
except the wireless (http://ipw2100.sf.net does that, it's
not in-kernel yet, and is still beta).
if you don't need wireless or can risk it not working right,
then you shouldn't have issues.
note that it's probably a different chipset that i have, but
the kernel config has options for different version above
and below, so i expect what yours has will be supported too
(play around with the kernel config program to see what it
covers if you like)
