Toshiba P25-s676

Anyone tried linux with this laptop?

I could use some help.
I'm getting flickering on the screen.

If halt the computer I need to unplug the power adapter before it will boot
again. Reboot does not work either unless unplugged. ACPI problem?

It has a phoenix bios, not the normal toshiba. I didn't know this a
purchase, so I can't use the toshiba acpi tools. Any ideas how to workwith this bios?

Nvidia works great. Sound works good also, but all the mixer setting are
difficult. I would help if I could have better support between the desktop
and bios, etc. for this (so the will talk to each other).

DVD playback works good.

Looks like the Atheros a/b/g wireless will work fine, but haven't
tired yet. Modules loaded fine.

That's where I am so far.
