Support has been there right from the Fedora Core 6 release but spotty. 
Over the last couple of releases, it is much better but still imperfect. 
  Touchpad afaik works. Function keys, you have to install pommed which 
has just been submitted for review at

http://www.diffingo.com/downloads/diffingo-repo/ has the binary 
packages. The long term solution is just to teach HAL to understand 
this. For webcam, install isight-firmware-tools which is already in the 
repository.  I don't personally have the hardware however and If you do 
decide to try the live cd or install it, I would be interested to know 
how well it works with the latest release.
