Your ZG5 was only certified for Ubuntu 10.04.4: http://www.ubuntu.com/certification/hardware/200905-2911/

Since you said your internal mic is not recognized, but an external mic works fine, I'd suggest filing a bug as mentioned in the FAQ. Also you may want to try asking at askubuntu or on the Ubuntu Forums, in case someone with a ZG5 model of the Aspire One has had any luck or knows of any other workarounds.
FAQ #2145: “My certified system has hardware that doesn't work”.

Can you help with this problem?
