I have Debian/Etch on a Dell Latitude D 520.
No Problems. 
The only thing that is a bit tricky is getting a picture of a video on the 
Beamer (clone-mode). For instance *.flv: You get the full picture on the lfp 
and the program-frame of the player over beamer, but not the movie. This area 
stays black.
Same with DVDs: Here you have to choose within Kaffeine/xine/video/xshm.
Don't ask me why
