 	I see what may be a similar issue with a T41p, but only
 	with an kernel with ACPI - the boot kangs after "Kernelized
 	RAIDframe activated". I've only just found this and I need
 	to be using the machine today so I'll try to get more
 	details this evening.

 	What is interesting (from this end), is that same kernel runs
 	fine on a selection of Asus A8V-Deluxe amd64 boxes, an NVIDIA
 	nForce2 AthlonXP box, and some old Dell PIII boxes, *plus*
 	an RC1 kernel from Sep 27th runs fine on the thinkpad.

 	Would you be able to try an RC1 kernel on your system to see
 	if it boots as a datapoint?
