I must ask, what is the point of listing partnumbers and posting internal pictures of the LCD display panel? Normally I would have objected to placing an LCD panel picture on a page meant to talk about a video controller, but in this rare case the video controller is only used in 2 model ThinkPads, the 350 (with a Monochrome!! panel), and the 350C.

For the FDD partnumbers, a pointer to the HMM (Hardware Maintenance Manual) would be more helpful.

Having a P/N for the display is helpful when doing repairs, but a picture "is worth a thousand words". It helps identify that a replacement part is an exact match or a close enough match to work since you can get a quick estimate of bezel size, where the video and power connections lead into the display, etc.

I put the LCD photo on the controller page because someone else started with the LCD info. Since I am new to wiki editing I could not figure out how to add a new article and categorize it specifically for this LCD. Same with the FDD.

Off topic- How the heck do I add a new article and put it in the proper category? I don't see an "add article" resource anywhere on ThinkWiki. 21:37, 3 Jan 2006 (CET)

Have a look at the T43 page, as an example of how to include images.

Also, we prefer to scale them down, and if someone wants to see them in detail, they can click on them.

I have updated the 350C page as such, and will remove the LCD image from the video controller page, as it is not the right location IMHO.

For creating new simple pages, just create a non-existing link first on an existing page, click on that link and edit it.
