Hi Leah

Thx for your answer. I tried experimental_86_g07ed7f9 with my Thinkpad T400 
today. Everything is running (I can tell from the noise of the HDD and also 
indicator of wifi comes up after blindly logging into the system), but graphics 
fail completely: not even external VGA-Monitor works and LCD-panel doesnt even 
flicker. Sewed an opening in the metal chassis today, so that I can access the 
flash chip more easily now (see photo attached, I was really fed up with all 
those screws, the heatsink and thermal paste ... :-), so flashing and testing a 
new image is much more straightforward now.

As to the Thinkpad x60s: the improvements sound great, but I will leave it as 
it is for the moment (I use it as my main computer for office work at the 
moment, so it has to work ... ;-), but I have another Thinkpad x60 (not the s 
model) which I can try instead.

Let me know if you want me to test another release candidate.
