I purchased a Sager 8886 from discountlaptops and have Debian/testing 
running on it.  I used the bf2.4 to install things.  I didn't have any 
problems getting it running.  The only thing that I don't have working 
is the Wifi card that came with the machine DWL 650+ and the modem.  I 
am a mac guy, but I needed a fast machine for all the compiling I do 
for work.  The only downside is the laptop is quite heavy.
