An annoying high-pitched noise produced by faulty electronics can be eliminated by adding "options processor max_cstate=2" to /etc/modprobe.conf (affects a whole series of intel chipsets with integrated bluetooth). Touchpad (including horizontal scrolling), Bluetooth and Wireless worked out of the box (maybe after Yast-Update). Installing 10.0 failed due to common ACPI problems (known and fixed in 10.1 AFAIK).|

|Pavilion dv8000z||10.0 Retail DVD, 64-bit||Built-in Broadcom card not detected, but
Linksys WPC55AG cardbus worked out of the box.
|The Broadcom card wasn't detected for wireless, so I assume that its Bluetooth functions don't work either, but I haven't tried.||suspend to disk
suspend to RAM not tested
|Touchpad works, but for some reason neither YAST nor KDE is able to disable it even when you tell them to (I hate touchpads). Fortunately I was able to tape some cardboard over it to effectively disable it. Of course, if you like touchpads, then there's no problem.||Important: If you're doing the 64-bit installtion you must add the boot option "noapic" or the video won't work (use F3 at the install prompt). 32-bit doesn't seem to need the extra boot option. Other than that, the install went perfectly.|
If you want the wireless to work, I'd recommend the Linksys WPC55AG wireless card since that worked for me, but if want a different card, make sure that you check compatability before you buy one (http://linux-wless.passys.nl/ is a good site), particularly if you're running in 64-bit mode. You're pretty much going to want a card that works with the kernel since it's difficult to get 64-bit Windows drivers for ndiswrapper to use.
