Notes

For the ATI Radeon Xpress 200M graphics chip in the L25 you can use either the open source radeon module or ATI's proprietary fglrx module. However since the 200M has minimal 3D support there is little point in using the fglrx module.

Summary

It was quite easy to install Linux on the Toshiba Satellite L25. The internal hardware was detected correctly and fully supported by Linux.
