Most things work out of the box with Fedora 14. However, a few things don't, and require some tweaking. I expect that these fixes will work with other ASUS laptops too.

Wireless driver

Download the latest Realtek 8992se driver (I used rtl8192se_linux_2.6.0019.1207.2010.tar.gz) from the following link:

http://www.realtek.com.tw/downloads

Install instructions are provided in the fie.

Suspend / resume

Suspend/resume doesn't work out of the box. You need to install a script https://bugzilla.redhat.com/attachment.cgi?id=492164

Put this script in /etc/pm/sleep.d/20_custom-ehci_hcd and make sure it is executable and owned by root.

Suspend to disk still doesn't work: it suspends just fine, but kernel panics on reboot. Suspend to memory is OK.

Video driver

The U31jg has two video interfaces, an NVIDIA GeForce GT 415M and the integrated Mobile Intel 915. Fedora will drive either of these: if you want to use the Intel 915, which may save power, add this line to your kernel command in /boot/grub/grub.conf/:

rdblacklist=nouveau

HDMI output

I've had a lot of trouble getting X reliably to recognize a projector attached to the HDMI output. However, it's not reliable with Windows either, so this may be a hardware problem.
