One or two (or five) questions about free software and hardware

I have a few questions:
1.) Is the only reason why completely free GNU/Linux distros like Gobuntu or
gnewsense don't work as well because of a lack of FOSS drivers?
2.) If so, are there laptops available in the world which one can buy that
have completely FOSS hardware (like the OpenMoko phone)?
3.) If such a laptop exists, would any old Joe like myself be able to run a
completely free OS? (Given that I am a GNU/Linux noob and know nothing about
programming, compiling, etc.)
4.) Is there a list somewhere of "certified FREE hardware" laptops /
desktops and where to buy them?
5.) Is the JISUS laptop (http://desktoplinux.com/news/NS3294112608.html)
such a machine?
Thank you ever so much for taking the time to answer my questions! I am
rather new to the issues at hand, have been searching around for a while for
answers but can't find any...
