If it's any help, I have always run thinkpads and I have 3com and
MehaHerz cards for them. Never had much trouble under the 2.0.* kernels
and before. once I learned to compile the APM stuff using "disable
multiple suspends" or whatever is the option (sorry, I'm flaked out and
can't make it to the file to read).

Yet to try a 2.4.0 test kernel on them though.
