      Just posted a brief summary of my (mostly) successful experience with
      Gentoo Linux on my Inspiron 1100.

      http://www.meyerloewen.net/dellinux/

      What works well:

      * Broadcom BCM4401 100Base-T Ethernet (rev 01)
      * Intel AC'97 Modem Controller / Conexant HSF modem
      * Intel 82801 AC'97 audio
      * Intel 82845G/GL chipset video, X at 1024x768x24
      * Synaptics touchpad & USB mouse
      * Netgear MA401 16-bit PCMCIA wireless card (added)
      * CPU on-demand frequency governing (in battery mode)

      What doesn't work:

      * software suspend (haven't really worked on it)
      * ACPI events (power button, lid, power status change, etc)

      Hope someone finds it useful.

      best,

      Carl
