I have compaq laptop with a Mobility Radeon Card, Well supported with
Xfree 4.2.0 and my dvd/cd-rw is a toshiba SD-R2002 and it was
detected, can see DVD's and burn cd's with no problem. Sound card works
fine(although the kernel needs some extra options) and with the
and memory you have, there should be no problem.

Any other question you can mail me.
Sorry to mail this with another address but I can send email with the
original one. So you can mail me to the both of them no problem.
