Probably.  We can't know exactly which systems might have small problems
when operating with Debian, but the Toshibas are generally known to be
supported (AFAICR anyway..)

With slink you might need the tecra flavor of boot disks which have a
kernel that works around a bug found on some Toshiba and other notebooks,
though this is apparently no longer the case if you install potato.

Potato is considered still to be in active development and may contain
unforseen bugs.  I _THINK_ there is a debian-laptop or similar list which
you can ask about specific problems should you have any, you'll have to
check the web page.  If I am wrong (I might just be since I have only
desktop machines and we have a _LOT_ of lists!) debian-user might be able
to help.

Good luck with Debian!

I sat laughing snidely into my notebook until they showed me a PC running
Linux. And oh! It was as though the heavens opened and God handed down a
client-side OS so beautiful, so graceful, and so elegant that a million
Microsoft developers couldn't have invented it even if they had a hundred
years and a thousand crates of Jolt cola.
