  • Ascentia M6233T. Olivier Gipouloux <>
  • Asus F7400. Eivind Trondsen <>
  • ChemBook 7000C/7000P. "The only caveat with the Chembooks is they have a strange BIOS - SystemSoft is the vendor. This thing requires that a DOS partition exist on the hard disk before it will go to the MBR. With a dual boot system this is no problem, but if you are like me and have no intention of using 'Doze, it can throw you for a loop. Just make a DOS partition of any size and mark it active and you should be able to boot using LILO just fine." Eric Larson <>
