I'm running 1856x1392 on an HP p1120 monitor quite happily, with a config that
has been tested also at 1600x1200, 1280x1024, and 640x480. I don't think
there is anything unusual or inspired about my X config, but if you want to
look at what I'm using, I've put a copy on the web at:
If you try this config, you can of course use the ctrl/alt/minus-on-keypad
combination to cycle through the modes it defines.

Yes. If you're running a recent kernel-image packages, you will find the
cs4281 driver has been included as a module. Just do 'modprobe cs4281' and it
should work. Note that xmms has problems (builds ok, but segfaults at run
time), but other audio programs seem ok.

No, you came to the right place. :-) The debian-ia64 list exists specifically
to address questions about how to use Debian on IA-64 systems like the HP i2000.
