That's good news.  What was your success booting the Potato CD on this
laptop?  In my experience, the Toshiba laptops (the 490CDT in particular)
would not boot the Potato CD.  As far as I'm aware, this was because the
boot image on the CD was based on a 2.88MB floppy image, where the Toshiba
laptops could only handle a 1.44MB image.

I'm impressed to hear Toshiba laptops can boot normally again :)
