IBM ThinkPad T30 – MultiOS

I catched a legendary IBM notebook ThinkPad T30/2366 model at last week, to hack an Atheros wireless card into… It was not too difficult, latest MadWifi to chum up with Linux kernel without problem.

As well there is a “new” PC, just try to create a multi-OS machine for application testing, with Linux, Windows and Mac OS X;

Linux:
– Ubuntu 9.04
– Radeon 7500 mobility X.org configuration (xorg.conf):
