There are a couple of issues with Ubuntu on the acer all relatively
minor https://help.ubuntu.com/community/AspireOne110L should give you an
idea.  It's easy to install you just use create a usb startup disc under
system admin on your ubuntu system with the cd in the machine.

My 110 is running almost flawlessly.  Hope that helps.
