I'm typing this in a T510, fc13 i386. I could not install fc12 - which I 
was running on my previous T61 - as the install driver could not make 
sense of the video card, but I really did not try hard (I bought it with 
the NVidia card as that was the only way to get the best resolution 
1920x1080 display). Fedora 13 was fine and the nouveau driver could 
handle the video card. Regretfully it introduced high latencies in audio 
so I had to switch to the NVidia binary driver (yuck!). Other than that 
it is running fine (network, wifi, dvd drive, usb, etc).
