Installing Ubuntu 7.10 On Thinkpad T61P

A new la entry has been added:

Installing Ubuntu 7.10 On Thinkpad T61P

I have installed Ubuntu 6.06, 6.10, 7.04, and 7.10 on an Acer Laptop (Travelmate 630) and an Acer Pentium IV (pre-Threaded) desktop. The desktop was purchased about four years ago, but is new enough to have native USB 2.0.

These installations were simple compared to installing Ubuntu on a Thinkpad T61p, and I believe the advanced NVIDIA graphics is the reason the installation was so difficult. Given this was an employer-purchased laptop that came through with Windows XP, I first needed to preserve Lenovo's extensive Windows tools that come with their pre-installed Windows Thinkpad models.
