It's a subnotebook, so it has no buildin CD/DVD-ROM. The installation is a little bit tricky.
You can try to boot eCS from a USB-Key (like I did; which is also
tricky) + connect an external CD-ROM drive (I used the PC-Card connected
SONY PCGA-CD51 from my old Sony Vaio PCG-505X subnotebook - which is even
smaller than the X31).
The drive doesn't power up until the driver is loaded which is why I had
to boot from the USB-Key first.
The other way would be: Remove the 2.5 harddrive and connect it with a
2.5" to 3.5" Adapter to your desktop computer, install the system and
put the drive back into the X31.
Boot, and you have a working X31 powered by OS/2 or eComStation.
German users can get the 2.5" to 3.5" Harddrive adapter from Reichelt
Elektronik (it costs 1,60 EUR - the Article Number is: ATA 44-40A), a
very good and cheap electronic equipment (Cables, Resistors,...) seller.
I've been using this Thinkpad X31 for 14 month now and it's great. That
there is no CD/DVD-ROM drive is no issue as I install everything over the
network connection if it needs to be done.
The display can be dimmed by using no extra software like Jan's "Thinkpad
On Screen Display" but if you like you can install it. You can get here:
I've not checked the ACPI driver!
