I got one of those, vga driver it trident cyberblade and 4.1 version from X
supports it. I'm running mine with sid, the ACPI's DSTN-table of this laptop
is non-standard. But visit at www.linux-laptop.net and look over there. The
DSTN - table can be fixed. ( but I'm not sure that it will run on M$ windows
after this )
