distribution on a Thinkpad 300C (IBM's 386SL color notebook) the day
It works ok, though we had a little trouble with the Linux extended fs.
We also managed to run Xfree (pre-2.0) in monochrome mode with a Microsoft-
compatible mouse on the serial port. We only have 4M RAM installed + 8M swap.
It's slow but won't crash. We'll try Xfree 2.0 with 16bit color next.
This probably means you can run Linux on *any* ThinkPad [fingers crossed].
