Hi Morgan 

Where can I get a Gutsy Beta cd?
IBM is way above my price range, 
Thanks I've looked and know now more on what it could be. But it doesn't
look if there is a solution for it...

I've never encountered this, but I'm quite good at Google:


Looks like an unknown hardware compatibility issue.

Gutsy Beta LiveCD might work better given that it has 2.6.22.

I've heard time and again, IBM/Lenovo T or X series. An Ubuntu
conference is like a Thinkpad user group...

I've got a Sony Vaio that I bought randomly because it was a lot
cheaper than the T43 I was going to get, but next time I intend to
hold out for something in the X series.
