Needs external CD-ROM drive to boot, or get a 2.5” to 3.5“ IDE adaptor and install the laptop hard drive in a spare desktop computer during installation.
Graphics: Work out of the box, and are configured correctly at 1024×768, and can be rotated by altering the “xorg.conf” file (needs to be tested further).
On-board WiFi: Configured correctly using ipw2100 module, but doesn't detect any networks. Hardware could be faulty.
Stylus: Works perfectly, just had to install “wacom-tools” through Synaptic Package Manager and reboot. Text entry can be achieved using GOK (Gnome Onscreen Keyboard).
Keyboard Hotkeys: Simply open a terminal and type “sudo -s” and then “echo acerhk » /etc/modules”, close, and reboot.
