I have not spent any real time comparing Linux distributions. I'm sure
everyone has their favorite. I was very pleased with how easily RH 7.1
installed onto my A21p. I overrode the defaults and refused lm-sensors
(I think that's what it's called.) that folks have reported problems
with on various ThinkPads. Also, I had to manually modify the X Window
configuration for the higher resolution display of the A21p
(1600x1200). (If I recall correctly, that would not be an issue for
the A20p.)
