Did you also managed to have suspend to work? I have naively enabled
it from the Kde Control Center > Laptop battery > Power Control
window; but I couldn't wake up the laptop from the suspend state, the

I have found a workaround to this issue removing the psmouse entry
from /etc/modules and creating a small init.d script
# synaptics Load the psmouse module
and then linking it in the rc runlevels with number 90, so that the
module is loaded at the very end of the boot process.
I would like to ask if you have found a solution for the Broadcom
wireless card: with
ndiswrapper and the 64bit winxp drivers the card is recognized, but I
cannot turn the radio on since the wifi button in the front of the
laptop has no effect in Linux.
