I finally got a new laptop (I dont know if anyone read my post about how compusa lost mine) but its 1.33 ghz. I've installed gentoo on the 867 mhz and I was just wondering if there was anything I should watch out for on this install. I thought I remembered reading about the 1.25 ghz models running at half the clock speed under linux? Is that an issue? Thanks guys.

Once you get to the kernel compilation phase of installation, download and install the kernel patch (it's in the "Powerbooks, slow" thread) and your cpu will be recognized at its full speed (and cpufreqd will work correctly).
Stage1/2 installs will go a little slow - just hold off on installing gnome or kde until you're booting off your own kernel. If you're doing a stage3, then no problem - most all your compilation will be done after you've booted your new kernel.
