I have a Lenovo Thinkpad z61m (the bigger brother to the 3000 series)
running a core 2 duo.  I have tried fedora and ubuntu, and both have
multi-processor support in their default kernels.  The Core Duo runs
only in 32 bit mode, whereas the Core 2 duo can run 64 bits.  You should
not have to do anything to get the processor working.

For day to day tasks it should work fine.  I do stereo recording and
edit home movies with my built in drive (also 5400 rpm), and I haven't
had any problems.

It looks like the 3000 series use intel video, which should work without
a hitch.  Ubuntu handles the ipw3945 "out of the box".
