Linux on Thinkpad X40

Many thanks to Stephan Müller, Matthew Brett and David Dawes for their help with the CRT problem, which unfortunately has not yet been solved. Stephan Müller's page was a great resource.

Overall I am quite happy with the machine. It's nice and light, reasonably powerful; APM, wireless and ethernet work fine, and apparently it is able to go for 5 hours on the battery. I will only mention the problem components in the rest of this report. If you know of some fixes for these problems, please let me know!
