I know this thread is old, but I've been reading it recently since
I'm setting up a T43 today. I thought I'd add that IBM is now charging
$45 for the system recovery disks. You can, however, create them
yourself under Programs -> Access IBM -> Create Recovery Disks.
A CD-R for the first (startup) disk and a DVD-R next works nice. I
decided to create them since it lets me delete the rescue partition
now and have a way to reset the laptop to factory setup when I sell it.
