I just started to write up this page as of 2009-08-12. Please expect more to come in the next couple of days. The "template" was taken from [[Install_Ubuntu_9.04_(Jaunty_Jackalope)_on_a_ThinkPad_T400| Ubuntu 9.04 on a T400]]. Of course at the moment [[http://www.ubuntu.com/testing/karmic/alpha4 | Karmic Alpha4]] is all you can get off the Net. The good news is: Everything works out of the box. Where are the good old times it took you a couple of nights to get a new box up and running? ;)

+
You may ask why an alpha when you can have Ubuntu Jaunty. I use btrfs as my filesystem of choice.

+
==Before Installation==
+
 
+
Backup your data. Maybe dd the rescue partition.
+
 
+
==BIOS Upgrade==
+
There is a [http://www-307.ibm.com/pc/support/site.wss/MIGR-72823.html Bios upgrade] available. Not sure if it is required. Install from a CD went smoothly.
