A piece of general advice: if you can get access to one, check what components the machine has. For example, I found that my laptop used an eepro100-based NIC, lucent modem, Yamaha opl3 (?) and S3 Savage IX/MV video card. These are all well supported under linux (in the case of the modem, lucent released drivers which somone is maintaining as an unofficial Debian package. I don't recall the URL OTTOMH.) The only thing I don't have working to my satisfaction is the APM support, but the ACPI looks very promising, once linux user-space support is up to par. (Keep in mind that much of this is due to my lack of time and interest in APM/ACPI; I almost always run my laptop plugged in anyway.) Since the models you mention were released not too long after mine, I suspect you will find similar results. BTW, Toshiba's website is a very good resource for specs, as is http://www.linux-laptop.net/ HTH, -- Mike Alborn <firstname.lastname@example.org> # pgp keyid: C36DC30B # http://odoitau.dyn.dhs.org Insanity is hereditary.
