The information in this document is correct to the best of my knowledge, but there's a always a chance I've made some mistakes, so don't follow everything too blindly, especially if it seems wrong.

Fujitsu-Siemens recommends to use Microsoft (R) Windows (C) XP Professional for versatile mobile computing. I wonder why you should give up the power and control of your hardware. Hey, Fujitsu-Siemens: If you care about your customers, please give them the free choice to run whatever they want! Pay a few hackers to make sure free operating systems run on your hardware! Thank you!

To the reader: Always have a backup of both the original configuration and your Linux installation if you have to get your laptop repaired. Though I hope trademarks will be superfluous sometimes (you may see what I mean at Open Source Definition: If certain words are trademarks, the context should make it clear to whom they belong. For example "MS Windows NT" implies that "Windows NT" belongs to Microsoft (MS). Trademarks belong to their respective owners.
