MDK 8.0 here on an A21p and it works fine. The only thing that mey not work 
out is getting a working XF86Config (or XF86Config-4). I'd suggest tracking 
down someone with the same screen/graphics set up as you and getting their 
XF86Config mailed to you, you can then just copy this over the default (the 
default didn't work for me and I don't think it does work on TP).

I've just remembered, the TP mouse doesn't work with the defaul MDK kernel, 
you need to use the CD to create boot floppy with one of the alternate 
kernels (which are on the CD), this gives you 2.2 kernel instead of 2.4 but 
it still works.

If I can help you with anything else please feel free to email me.
