Installing Debian Sid on a ThinkPad X201s
Before the installation
I used the Debian Squeze D-I Alpha 1 (built on the 22.03.2010) from USB, as I do not have a CD/DVD-ROM. The installer boots fine (in contrast to the Lenny one, which cries with kernel oopses), but can't bring up the network card. This was ok for me, YMMV.
Boot CD/USB, install. No special hacks needed (ncurses installer, didn't try the GTK one).
The installer installed linux-image-2.6.32-3-amd64, but I am running linux-image-2.6.33-2-amd64 from experimental and a self built 2.6.34-rc4.
