I have RH7.1 running on a TP600E (type 2645-4AU).  The installer made it
through OK.  I had specified a 'laptop' install.  Currently running kernel
2.4.3-12, having installed all the RH errata.

I plugged a MS wheel mouse into the USB port and it works fine, including
the wheel.

I am getting set to upgrade to XFree86 4.1.0 in the hope that this problem
goes away.  I dunno.

Have not yet started work on trying to get sound working.

A pcmcia ethernet card worked straight away.

The DSP modem is working thanks to Thomas Hood's tpctl and the mwave driver
at IBM.
