The ATI remote is also part of the kernel.  I know FC2 automagically 
sets it up (just need to remap some keys)  I would assume most all 
distributions with kernel > 2.6.6 will do that.  I am trying Mandrake 
10.1 as soon as I can talk my wife into some myth downtime.

As David Said the keymap is not all too friendly but if yo mess with the 
source it can be remapped to the perfect set up.  (I haven't done that 
yet because I haven't figured out how to compile just that one module 
and not the whole flipping source.)   --Maybe AT can make the changes to 
one of his kernels on ATRPMS.
