ThinkPad X200s


Debian Lenny install:

Debian Sid install:!2019B2D8CDA6ED!748.entry

Arch Linux install:

CentOS 5 install:

The above Debian related links explain the hoop-jumping required (in early 2009) for x200s models that have the 5300 wireless card. However if you have a model containing the 5100 (e.g 7469-5KG) then a standard Debian Lenny install ('HD-media' on USB key+wireless net install) works fine and is straightforward.
