I have a EeePC900 which ran sidux quite well back in 2008. It now has 
AntiX on it which runs fine but the function keys don't work. That could 
possibly be due to a cheap ebay replacement keyboard (the original died 
completely) or the lack OS support. Years ago Debian had 2 specific 
packages, eeepc-acpi-scripts and eee-control which used to enable these 
but their most recent versions would not install.

AntiX is pretty lightweight so is well worth trying.
