Thinkpad X31

Trying to get SuSE Professional 8.2 installed on an IBM X31 Centrino
laptop and I have run into a few problems. The most urgent ones are the

For some reason I can not swith on the max speed of the harddrive in the
laptop. 'hdparm -d1 -X69 /dev/hda' tells me that it can't set UDMA5 mode
and DMA is not an option that can be switched on.

The other problem seems to be related to the ATI Radeon graphics card.
If X is started, and I restart the server (either Ctrl+Alt+Backspace or
/etc/init.d/xdm restart) I get a black screen. After having installed
the GATOS drivers (both X and drm) I instead get a hard lockup.

Both of these problems are sort of a showstopper. If anyone has any
details about this, I would very much like to hear them even if they
don't solve the problems directly. :-)
