Managed to get Lucid Lynx working on the 1101HA. Wireless connectivity worked out of the box. Installed the poulsbo drivers from ppa as described in , summarized here
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gma500/ppa && sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install poulsbo-driver-2d poulsbo-driver-3d poulsbo-config
Resolution obtained = 1366 x 768. Some issues remained, for example, attempting to switch to tty1 (or tty2) logged me out of the session altogether; flickering before the login screen appears. But I can live with these minor problems.
