Graphics card & LCD Panel

The graphics card is the Intel model and as such supports the resolution 1400x1050, but fails to publish this in the video bios. Open SuSE 10.1 includes Alain Poirier's patch and the video card is correctly configured.

The 3D accelleration needs to be configured in Sax2, but works without issue.

The second output channel is recognised and can be configured for use, but this has not been tested.

The CD drive reads CDs and DVDs, writes CD-Rs, other formats have not been tested.
