Heat dissipation (fan doesn't spin when it should) and APM/ACPI sleep 
don't work are the worst things about T30 and related laptops.

Most have three buttons now.  If you have the combo-NAV thingy, you have 
to disable touchpad in the BIOS to get the middle mouse button to work.  

Now if IBM would write and/or test all of their drivers under Linux, 
that would be a great day...  Hope is on the way though:

Would be great, though, if we could somehow coax Kudzu into detecting a 
laptop and then config the beast to run instead of relying on random 
HOWTOs everywhere.  Guess it would require a mini "Fedora 4 Laptop" 
project to get going and pipe the output into the fedora-config team.
