On my PII-233 Thinkpad 600, I've used FreeBSD 5.x and 6.x without 
problems.  Maybe 4.x, too, can't recall.  X11 worked fine.  I didn't 
test any suspend or power save functions.  You can check the FreeBSD

Unfortunately, it seems to have been discovered by link spammers. 
Still, the original information looks intact.
