  I'm still at the "kicking-tires" stage, and probably won't buy until
the new year.  I willing to buy a generic Taiwanese no-name laptop,
versus a generic Taiwanese laptop with a Dell sticker and a Windows
licence<g>.  http://lxer.com/module/newswire/view/43550/ explains

  http://www.sub500.com looks interesting, but the mention of a
"Linspire-compatable 56K modem" is worrisome.  I'd like a real modem
please.  Linux can handle a PCI modem without problems if you set one
parameter when compiling the kernel.  I don't want to worry about
whether or not a binary "winmodem" driver is available for whatever
kernel of Gentoo I'm running.
