I just got a t42p and am frantically researching it to decide whether
to keep it. Your info was useful, although I think you're missing a 0
in your psm hint (see below).
I'm saddened that my t42p doesn't seem to support s4bios suspend
(although it will hibernate w/out acpi).
I've put notes around some of your settings based on my thinkpad
research, could you confirm that I understand the how's and why's?

[make the dvd drive go faster]
[keep the machine from randomly reawakening after shutdown]
[support various acpi-based video ops (e.g. setting brightness)]
[firewall (not thinkpad specific)]
[load the netgraph bluetooth stuff (not really thinkpad specific)]
[ntfs support (not thinkpad specific)]
[turn on sound support. I think that the second is redundant, it
loads *all* of the modules, after the first one loads (presumably) the
correct one. What's up?]

[tweak the mouse. I *think* you mean "0x2000", which sets the
HOOKRESUME bit (see the psm manpage). 0x200 sets the noidprobe, which
oughtn't help much.]

Anything interesting to say about suspend/hibernate/acpi etc? Did you
see my call for Thinkpad stories? Care to contribute?
