Probably.  But Juha, since you were successful, would you please
register an account on the wiki (if you haven't already) and link a new
page for Model 1101HA from http://wiki.debian.org/DebianEeePC/Models?
Just dump your notes into it.

However, there are a couple of points that probably should be edited:

1. you shouldn't need an external wifi dongle to install.  instead, use
an installer with 2.6.30 which includes ath9k ... unfortunately there is
no WPA support yet in the http://wiki.debian.org/DebianInstaller kernel
snapshots (so if your wifi access point has WPA enabled, temporarily
disable it to do the install and re-enable it afterwards; this should
work fine)

2. you shouldn't need upstream's package to get atl1c working.
instead, use kernel 2.6.31 (available from dists/trunk from the
http://wiki.debian.org/DebianKernel team) ... unfortunately there is no
debian-installer image that uses this kernel yet, so you need to
install some other way and add the kernel after

We really need someone to write the whole process up step-by-step to
support these new machines (1005HA and 1008HA are similar).  But even
if you just dump your notes into the 1101HA page and make these couple
of suggested edits, it's better than nothing.
