Thinkpad T42p + Ubuntu - at last, some assembly required

My experiences so far with Ubuntu on a Thinkpad T42P have been very positive. I now have a docking station, a nice USB mouse, WIFI working fine, everything working fine except....

I need to get PPP working with the internal modem. minicom cannot knock a peep out of it. Reports from the trenches feature incantations of SmartLinks and HSFs and other incantations.

At this point, I know one thing for sure (I think) :-) It doesn't work right out of the box with Ubuntu.

sleeves.status = rolled_up.

More news anon...
