Statler Laptop Compatibility

http://crunchbang.org – I'm using a Toshiba A85-S1072.  I acquired it from a friend when he got a new laptop last year.  It had 512MB of RAM in it, and ran Windows XP badly.  So I put crunchbang on it.  Zero problems.  No need to add new drivers or anything, it recognized and worked with all of my hardware right away.  Anyways, obligatory lspci dump: 00:00.0 Host bridge [0600]: ATI Technologies Inc Device [1002:7831] 00:01.0 PCI bridge [0604]: ATI Technologies Inc Radeon 9100 IGP PCI/AGP Bridge [1002:7838] 00:13.0 USB Controller [0c03]: ATI Technologies Inc OHCI USB Controller #1 [1 (HowTos)
