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. 
 
Use Ndiswrapper with the NETw4x32 drivers, the others won't work.
 
 
 
==Xorg==
 
===Widescreen===
 
Hwd did not do the monitor widescreen (1280x800) 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 "1280x800"
 
        EndSubSection
 
EndSection
 
 
 
I just used vga=773 and it doesn't look too bad.
 
 
 
The Nvidia driver has it's own way of doing resolution, but I didn't find any conflict between the xorg setting and nvidia setting, so it really doesn't matter.  I think the nvidia trumps the xorg.conf, though.
 
 
 
===Synaptic===
 
Works great with the settings provided in the Pacman output
 
 
 
==Graphics==
 
===Nvidia===
 
Driver works great, even with composite enabled.
 
====Tweaks====
 
When I have time
 
 
 
===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.
