Haven't tried Linux on the 560 line, but it runs great on Thinkpad 7xx
machines. X does OK too. I've used Caldera and Red Hat 4.1 with no
problems.

There's a Linux 'n' Thinkpads page at:

1. 5.1 on IBM Thinkpad 560 and IBM CDROM

I am trying to install RH 5.1 and I cannot get the installation
program to detect my CDROM. When I tell the program that the
media is on CDROM the CDROM driver reacts by starting to spin,
but then I get a question asking whether it is an 'SCSI' or 'other'
and all alternatives I try end up with no device found.

The CDROM driver is an IBM 1969011 with an IDE PCMCIA interface.

I have tried the boot options:
        linux hdX=cdrom    (X from a to d)
with no effect.

If anyone has a clue what I should try I would be most grateful.

Thanks,
        Tomas.
