I'm running sarge (used the new installer) on an Averatec 3220. Only a 12"
screen but an AMD Athlon CPU. DVD-ROM/CD-RW is nice.

Everything works nicely (well, haven't tried the modem, no use for it)

Maybe that will do it..

If you're looking for a cheap laptop as your not-main machine, this is
worth looking at. Only weighs 4.2 lbs. too...
