1. You may have noticed things look a little different around here - we've switched to a new platform (XenForo) and have some new forum styles and features. This how-to guide will help you find your way around. If you find anything that looks strange, post it in this thread.

    tabook and its brethren are moving to http://www.lenovo.com/psref/ and
    the ftp site at ibm.com will be going away.

    Also, since the SL series has their own book, tabook no longer covers all ThinkPads (assuming that one considers the SL series to be a ThinkPad at all).

    Excellent work, Arkit3kt! Maybe you might want to add www.thinkwiki.org under External Links/Resources for a) linux installation instructions and b) as another source for general FAQs?

    Noted.

    Added. Can't forget about Linux users.

    Thanks, fs005.

    To get rid of all or most of the bloatware that comes with most new Thinkpads what items can be disabled under MSCONFIG in Startup and what items can be removed to improve performance?

    A picture of what can be left checked and what can be unchecked in Startup would be great.

    Added section for those who want to optimize their battery life.

    I would do that, but what is useful to each individual is up to them. There are also many guides out there to optimize their system and each operating system has different services running. For example, Les' Thread.
