I have just got my new X22 laptop (which rocks, btw) and am preparing to
install Debian unstable on to it. However, I have a few questions before I
1. Is it save to use lm_sensors on this laptop? I've seen warnings that
using lm_sensors can damage the BIOS.
2. I would like to keep Win2K and duel boot to Linux. What is the easiest
way to duel-boot a Linux/Win2K machine?
3. IBM have not provided a rescue disk but have instead used a rescue
partition, which is the strangest idea I've ever heard. What if I need to
rescue the machine because the disk crashed? As you can imagine, this is a
large partition (~750M) - does anyone know if it can be burnt onto a couple
of CDs easily? Has anyone asked for rescue CDs from IBM?
4. I own a MediaSlice X2 with CD-ROM. Is Linux good at detected when I plug
it in? I'll be running kernel 2.4.16 with devfs so it should be possible to
treat it as a series of hot-plug devices, right?
Thanks for any help,
