as written around half of the page, you can give the mactel kernel-patches (for vanilla-source) a try:
https://mactel-linux.svn.sourceforge.../trunk/kernel/
also have a look at the links at the bottom of the page.
anyway, try using google with the keywords: "macbook pro" 5.1 aluminium unibody. ciao, Lo.

That link helped alot, thanks. But now I want to get teh 13.3 Macbook and it's not considered a "Macbook Pro", even though it still has the intell chipset. The Gentoo wiki list only the "Macbook Pro" line as the supported hardware. Is there a difference in hardware between the 13.3 Macbook and the Macbook Pro line? Am I taking a risk with the 13.3?
