Thanks for the info. This is a TP 600. Truth is I like
the old pad: looks wornout, unatractive and less
likely to be stolen.... so I can take it about freely.
I am not giving up yet on the TP. Plse send me the
info links.

Is this the 600E.  I know I had one of these for a
while.  I could
never get sound working on it.  There are plenty of
websites that talk
about it.  I can find my old bookmarks if you want. 
My 600E crashed
on me about 6 months ago and I replaced it.  It was a
problem.  The problem was that the sound card was
actually something
different then what it is detected as.  As far as I
know, there isn't
a distro out there where you have to fight to get
sound to work on
this laptop.  Sorry.
