HDAPS, Suspend-to-disk, Suspend-to-ram, tp-fancontrol and cpufreqd works
just fine.
lm_sensors won't work but you can get all the important information in
/proc/acpi/ibm/*

x11-drivers/xf86-video-ati (6.6.3) works well.
I don't think you need an up to date graphics driver for an old laptop.
There are no more changes in the support for the Radeon Mobility 7500.

There are different wireless cards used in the T41.
Atheros AR5212 is well supported
(madwifi, wpa_supplicant, etc.)


Have fun!
