They should work out-of-the box.  The wifi is ipw2100 and the pen input is a
wacom.  The most that /might/ be required is toggling the radio kill switch:

  echo on | sudo tee /proc/acpi/wmi/WMID/wlan

Anything that is _not_ working out of the box is a bug anyway and needs
fixing in Ubuntu generally.  Because of the lack of built-in optical, for
installation they can either be installed with a USB CD drive, or netbooted.
