There were no problems in getting the Fujitsu Amilo 7400M laptop working when used with an up to date Linux distribution up to and including the 2.6.27 kernel. Linux distributions with kernels > 2.6.27 may have difficulty with this laptop's graphics. In some cases with such newer kernels a boot using the intel graphic driver is only possible with apci=off boot code. Else it is necessary to use FBDEV or VESA graphic driver.
