I installed SuSE 7.0 from the DVD drive, without problems.
The BIOS can be reached by the MS-Windows GUI. You may also press <ESC> at boot time (immediately!), then <F1>.
I have used the framebuffer X server. With
vga = 791 in
/etc/lilo.conf it works in 1024x768 16 bpp mode. Note you have to start
with the options
-- -bpp 16 or set the default color depth to 16 in
/etc/XF86Config. Also I didn't take certain modelines but used the key word
"default" in the screen section. An external monitor SONY SDM-M51 worked out of the box.
S3 driver for the SAVAGE MX/IX chip (XFree86 SVGA) worked in version 4.0.2, I have used an update version of SuSE 7.0, and used
sax2 to configure X.
Works with recent PCMCIA-CS packages.
No IrDA port available!
Works in PS/2 mode. The scroll buttons are reported as wheel motion (Z axis motion) and can be accessed after mapping in XF86Config.
