Hi Florin,

Thanks for the reply. The previous owner of this laptop used it with
Windows 2000 without any problems with the touchpad. That's not to say
that the hardware isn't quirky, but it worked at least under Windows.

In any case, it's interesting that you mentioned Fedora Core, because I
was going to try FC6 on this laptop next if I can't get it working under

Thanks again,
