I don't normally like to respond to myself, but, I want to make sure folks 
have it right.

The Amethyst, which Karsten has, has got Intel EEpro ethernet, video is
ATI Rage Mobility P/M, and the sound is Crystal Sound.  so you'll want a
2.2.17 kernel or better, and 2.2.18 or a 2.4.x local build would be *much*
better, because it's pretty raw in 2.2.17.

Whereas the au8810 is what the sound is on their Topaz, and that system, if 
yaou happen to have it :) has the Savage Mobility chipset for video (ow, gotta
use their custom hacked-SVGA instead of the 3.3.6 SVGA server, unless things
have improved), and the Realtek chipset for ethernet.
