The Thinkpad 600E series (and I believe most if not all Thinkpad 600 series 
machines) had a Windows program to configure the BIOS and set the IRQ, DMA, 
and port addresses.  So using the parameters that worked for someone else 
won't necessarily work for you unless you use the Windows program to set the 
same hardware parameters.

The Linux isapnptools package might allow you to do the same thing as the 
Windows programs, but I'm not sure.
