I 'll say that Debian detect correctly the hardware on my laptob (Dell Aspire
9100). Except, it seems, video card ATI Radeon x600 for which I had to
install different stuffs fglrx and ati as it was not able to do 3D.
But I'm not sure about that because I have the feeling that 3D support is
in fact not included in the standard etch reposititories (but I might be wrong
on this last asumption...)
