SuSE Linux 8.0 on IBM T30 Thinkpad

[See also notes on the T30 with SuSE 8.2] As the proud owner of an IBM T30 notebook, the first thing I did was discard the preinstalled WindowsXP and install Linux; specifically, the SuSE 8.0 distribution.

SuSE 8.0 installs well on the T30, however, there are a few problems. Because some of them are interrelated, I strongly recommend that you read this entire document before making changes.

Note that I have a T30 model number 2366-92G. Depending on the exact model you have, your mileage may vary.
