I agree with the posters in your "USB" thread that it is probably best
for you to upgrade to Etch or to install it freshly with the current RC
installer or the latest nightly build. Most of your problems will
probably go away as soon as you use the newer kernel of Etch. (Etch will
soon be released as the new "stable" version of Debian anyway, replacing
Tuxmobil has two entries for Samsung X11 laptops; they are for Gentoo
rather than Debian, but they might be helpful nonetheless:
Another useful website is this one:
You can copy/paste the output of "lspci -n" into the form and it will
tell you which drivers you need. This will give you a good impression
how well your hardware is supported in the newest kernel.
