Well why didn't you say so? See on the page
http://www.enderak.com/linux/thinkpad600/ a link to some version of
However, if you ever want to use hibernation then you will need a FAT
partition for the hibernation file. Once you have that you might as
well make it a few MB larger and include PS2.EXE as well IO.SYS and
MSDOS.SYS so you can dual-boot to MSDOS and your Linux installation.
Almost everything that PS2.EXE does for you can also be done by tpctl or
directly with lspnp/setpnp (given a PNP-enabled kernel). Everything you
would want to do with the serial devices configuration (modem, external
port, IR port) can be done with lspnp and setpnp. Still, I think there
are a few settings that can only be manipulated by PS2.EXE, so it is
good to have it available.
And remember, everything you will want to do with a ThinkPad 600E has
been done by lots of people already, and there are quite a few web pages
out there detailing the various tasks. Google is your friend.
