</a><br>&gt; Subject: [gentoo-laptop] Guide for Thinkpad T41<br>&gt;<br>&gt; Does anybody have any info or links on setting up Gentoo on a Thinkpad<br>&gt; T41? I have found allot of mixed info on it. Some outdated, some<br>
&gt; incomplete etc...&nbsp;&nbsp;In particular, I am looking for solid info on the<br>&gt; following:<br>&gt;<br>&gt; Set up the hard drive and power management stuff rignt,<br>&gt; Use the best and most up to date graphics driver
<br>&gt; Set up xorg.cong to make use of a second display, usb mouse etc...<br>&gt; Wireless networking (hopefully a great gui to scan for access points!)<br>&gt; CDRW<br><br>Guide for the Thinkpad T42<br><a href="http://furius.ca/techdoc/misc/thinkpad.html">
