When I got my Thinkpad I tried several distros and those (matching) 
rpms, where I could find them.

I got to the last choice before I had something that worked.
I have a brace of EL4.92/5 rpms here((.

I actually have two:-) The Acer, with OpenSUSE 10.0 gave 32. or so 
mbytes/sec, the Thinkpad with 10.2 and two or less on the same network.

The Thinkpad's not new, I got it at auction.
