JohnGoerzen has confirmed these things work on the 901:

 * X
 * Hardware ethernet
 * Wifi with above driver, including WPA2 and network-manager
 * Suspend/Resume
Performance seems to be better than the Xandros install.

Work on supporting the 901 and other Atom-based models (1000, 1000H) has commenced. We have a source package for the atl1e ethernet driver at http://eeepc.debian.net/ and are working on producing debs of this and rebuilding the installer to include them so that an ethernet-based install on these models will be possible.

A driver for the wireless hardware can be found at http://www.ralinktech.com.tw/data/drivers/2008_0708_RT2860_Linux_STA_v1.7.0.0.tar.bz2.
