If there are boot problems, try going from AHCI to compatibility in the BIOS.  I don't really know what is going on here, but my computer works in compatibility, I haven't tried AHCI.
 
==Wireless==
 
===Intel 4965 WiFi===
 
If, like me, you chose the free upgrade, well, that sucks for you, there are no drivers. 
 
Ndiswrapper can work, but make sure you use the NETw4x32 drivers, the others won't work.
 
 
 
==Xorg==
 
===Widescreen===
 
Hwd did not do the monitor widescreen (1200x800) properly, and it was instead doing 1024x768.  In xorg.conf, here is the relevant section:
 
Section "Screen"
 
        Identifier "Screen0"
 
        Device    "Card0"
 
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
 
        DefaultColorDepth 24
 
        SubSection "Display"
 
                Depth    24
 
                Modes "1200x800"
 
        EndSubSection
 
EndSection
 
 
 
I just used vga=773 and it doesn't look too bad.
 
 
 
==Graphics==
 
===Nvidia===
 
Driver works great, even with composite enabled.
 
====Tweaks====
 
===Intel===
 
Don't have it, so cannot say.
 
 
 
==Power Management==
 
===ACPI===
 
===SpeedStep===
 
 
 
==Thinkvantage Rescue and Recovery(not tested)==

To save time, I believe all the T61 hidden partitions are /dev/sda1.
 
I haven't really tried any of this.
 
 
 
==Sound==
 
 
 
The module is snd-hda-intel.  It works alright.  The mute button works automatically but not the volume ones.  We'll see about that.
