Hi: I got an E520 and tried to install 90RC2 on it, ACPI problems with 
thermal zone 0 (-273). I got the system installed awkardly: the 
installer was useless as the console would fill with acpi error 
messages. Tried to boot live and run sysinstall on a different console 
but wouldn't install. Eventually I did everything manually.

But then trying buildworld got the system hanging without any error 
message probably due to overheating.

So, the final resort was to install linux .. that suck. :(

I don't know the other series. Good luck and let me know.

BR, Erik
