if you wanted to try a 2.6.34 kernel with just the most similar config to the
standard Ubuntu config, it might be simpler to just use one of the pre-compiled
kernels from http://kernel.ubuntu.com/~kernel-ppa/mainline/
As for the actual problem. This sounds very very much like the pain caused by
bios vendors blindly following guidelines which ms did not necessarily give.
Try to boot with acpi_osi="!Windows 2009" as a kernel argument and see whether
this does not revive the fn+f8 combination.
