Updating ram in ibm thinkpad 600x
Armed with a fresh install of Ubuntu and a wireless card, I’ll be rigging this up as a semi-permanent member of my wardriving setup.
Note (Wouter de Vries) : Can't connect using ipw2100 (does load), installed ndiswrapper manually, which works.
USB CD burners is automatically detected and accessable with Nautilus Burn (havn't tried any other applications).
I can connect to networks both with and without encryption though I have some small issues when switching from an encrypted network to an unencrypted network with the network-admin program.

You can check current BIOS and Embedded Controller versions as detailed here: BIOS Version The following table lists direct links to BIOS updates for most Thinkpad Models.
Refer to BIOS Upgrade for instructions on how to perform a BIOS upgrade.
It can also be found as the OEM table ID in the ACPI DSDT.
It is formed by the characters "TP-", plus the first two characters from the BIOS/EC update part number.
