Satellite A215-S4767
these notes are bt3beta specific
needs acpi=off to prevent hang during boot
xconf makes X unstartable, either copy xorg.conf-vesa to xorg.conf or use
a linux ati driver is give here, I can't post urls
installing that, then running xconf produces 1200x800 res in X

however, the ati supplied driver, once installed kills network access (eth0 dies)
mini-pci-e card atheros AR5007GE (RF 5424) works, but packet injection seems to fail
dbt boot param enables both cores of turion-64-X2

Turning off acpi indeed prevents hang during booting.

Everything works fine until I hit startx. As stated above xconf makes X unstartable. How is it that I copy xorg.conf-vesa to xorg.conf or install the linux driver given above? I'm new to Linux.

Btw I use a CD Live to boot BT3. Thx
