IBM Thinkpad A21p

Hi all,

I'm looking to purchase one of these, because I just can't go past that
1600x1200 LCD (and I don't know of any other laptops that match that. 
Indeed I haven't found more than a couple that go past 1024x768.

Does anyone here have any experience with running Linux (particularly
Debian, of course) on such a beast?

Looks like I might be able to buy it with one of:
	10/100 mini-PCI "EtherJet" with Modem (Lucent?)
	10/100 mini-PCI "Ethernet" with Modem (3com)
	10/100 mini-PCI "EtherJet" with Modem (Intel)
and the 3com claims to support DOS (but not Linux - sigh) so presumably
would be the best choice unless anyone has specific experience.  Also, I
think I might be better with an "Ethernet" adaptor than an "EtherJet"
one...  sounds suspicious... :-)

Any and all comments and experience welcome.
