I just got my 13" 1.86/4gb/128gb MBA from fedex about half an hour ago, and I'm reinstalling the OS right now to save a bit of space. It literally isn't making any noise at all, and for a couple seconds I thought it had frozen up and was busted.

how am i supposed to know the disk drive is working if it's not making noises??

The most reliable test for any Mac's fan is flash :D

Just open any website that has a flash video and you'll hear your fan kicking.
