Wyrfel, The specs you wrote down for the R51e do not match with tabook.
According to the latest tabook.pdf, this machine uses the ATI Radeon Xpress 200M, which is an integrated video controller as part of the ATI RC410MD chipset. Also it does not have UltraBay, the CD or Combo drive is non-removable.
Processors are mostly Celeron M, the 1.4 or 1.5GHz models or the 1.73GHz Pentium M. --Tonko 03:57, 17 Oct 2005 (CEST)
Hei, yepp, i didn't do this from tabook, but from the support site's specs listing - i know it's not the best source. However, there it said the drive would be UltraBay Enhanced.
I was a bit confused about the graphics chip, because this model had mention of Radeon X600 and Radeon Xpress 200M in some articles. However, i got it now and will change it.
Processors are also according to the specs page online. I think tabook might not feature the whole range of models yet, so i'll keep the listing as it is now...if those model don't show up in reasonable time we can remove them.

the tabook says that the MiniPCI port is only in some models, that's why i included the "on select models" remark. You know these t*books better then me, maybe they are just unclear about it?

Sorry about that, I messed up.
According to tabook, you either have a MiniPCI slot with WiFi card, or you have no MiniPCI slot. I have adjusted the page as such.

I got r51e and now I amd fighting with it. Added some info about it. Most devices are listed as "Unknown device" but alsmost everething is working.
ATI Technologies Inc IXP SB400 AC'97 Audio Controller (rev 02)
An AC'97 Audio Controller is NOT the audio chip, it is simply another BUS with an Audio Codec attached. since the AC'97 BUS cannot be scanned by lspci, it does not report the actual Audio Coded (AD1981B)
I have suspected this ;) but dont have enough knowlage to check it. It is said in the section about AD1981B that it is supported by snd-intel8x0 driver but for r51e you have to use atiixp driver. Probably, AD1981B section should be updated.

Removing non-removable dvd-drive
Has anyone knowledge how to remove and replace the "non-removale" dvd-drive of a R51e. I'm planning to buy such R51e but want excange the including DVD-RAM capable burner with a normal CDRW/DVD-Combo drive. I belief this should somehow be possible. Even if there is now eject button, can anybody answer, if they drive itself is a complete UltraBay Enhanced drive?
Thanks for commenting. Links are welcome too.
