You sure made it sound like you were speaking with the voice of experience in this post:

Also for the record if you're speaking of a Thinkpad T42, I can guarandamntee that a standard OEM disk of the kind that matches the sticker on the bottom of the pc will install on that laptop. I know I buy used T42's by the skid-load from a supplier in Mississauga Ontario.
Maybe tomorrow I'll wanna settle down, until tomorrow I'll just keep moving on...
