Linux working again

So I finally have both Windows XP Pro and Gentoo Linux installed on my laptop and running correctly.  I’m currently using bios version A08 also.  The best part yet, X is working!!!  I’m pretty excited about that.  I documentated everything I did along the way and am trying to put my notes all together for an update to my original linux installation guide.

Some points to note for now are that I still had to patch the gentoo kernel source so that the cdrom worked currectly with DMA, I’m using Xorg CVS branch where I also had to apply patches to the source also, and I’m still using the ~x86 gcc version for pentium-m optimizations.  I found a lot of good information in the forums in my original thread that helped.  Expect to see a page added soon with the update to date installation instructions.
