Hi Tariq,

I found this paticular solution to ur querry.
All u have to do is just click the link wihout "SPACES".
Enter the "Family" of your IBM ThinkCenter
Next u need to choose the "Operating System" as "Linux"..
and then check for it... ages%2FdownloadsDriversLandingPage.vm&validate=true

hope this will help
