The modem needs the proprietary Linuxant module to function.
Different models of the T43 include either the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900 or ATI Mobility Radeon x300. For the Intel graphics chip you can use the i810 module. For the ATI graphics chip you can use either the open source radeon module or the proprietary ATI module, however you will likely get better performance from the proprietary module.
This laptop works very well under Linux. Nothing difficult in getting this one working at all.
