I'll be curious to see how this plays out.  I've got a couple of Compaq 
Presario Athlon 64 3400+ and 3700+ laptops that seem fine with WinXP, 
but I find that I spend most of my time using them as an Xterm to talk 
to Linux machines.  If all the various integrated devices are supported 
(nvidia video, 54mbit wifi, ether, firewire, etc) it would probably make 
one HELL of a portable Linux workstation.

Anyone here using a recent vintage Presario or HP equivalent w/CentOS 4?
