>>> A local user here wants to buy a (not further specified) AST laptop,

> installed Linux on such a beast?
>> My biggest worry was support for X, but that should be ok according
> the XFree86 web site (it uses some Cirrus Logic GD754x chip). And I
> guess that, considering its age, all hardware should be supported
> (CD-ROM, floppy, PCMCIA etc).
