I did lot's of tweaking to the following page: http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Installing_Ubuntu_8.04_%28Hardy_Heron%29_on_a_ThinkPad_T61
It seemed to make sense to start with what works, discuss minor tweaks, then discuss major tweaks.
I hope others like the edits. Let me know if you have a concern about them. 4 May 2008
