Hi Steffen,

I have installed debian on the same way like you. My first action was to use qtparted to shrink the windows XP partitions.

I have running the - power managment (more than four hours active time) with powernowd
- wlan is working correctly with speedstep-centrino and wpa_supplicant
- touchpad with synaptics The main problem I have is the support of the audio and special buttons for starting/stopping the wland, bluetoothd, audio ...
