Pointers in the sense of links to websites I haven't been able to get from google myself. Best case would be a pointer to an experience report linux-laptop.net style.

I believe Leandro means "which cheap pc from which german discounter", not "which pointer".

Your original post is kind of like saying "What type oil filter do I need for my cheap import car?"

It sounds like the Debian installer you have has an older kernel that doesn't recognize your hardware. Do you have the Woody set of CDs, or are you installing from a disk your got when you bought a magazine two years ago, or what? Do you have the ability to burn a new CD from the network? If so, try getting the fourth CD in the Woody set (should have a 2.4 kernel), or an unofficial sid CD that maybe has a newer kernel.
