Tux Machines (TM)-specific
From the offset I feel it necessary to say that this Toshiba notebook as I have found it is made for Ubuntu 6.06. The installation was distressingly simple and hassle free. The installation took just over 45 minutes with 1GB.
On first boot-up the sound card sang-, loudly. The display was excellent. The internal wireless LAN card worked and picked up my access-point-, remarkable. It exceeded all expectations. Only two devices did not work. The internal SD card reader and the 56k internal Win modem. I have a Xircom PC card modem that works fine if you address it as tty s3 or s4.
My computer is dual partitioned as are all of my others.
