It has only one USB port I can find, but the computer keeps telling me I have two of them. SO... is there another? If so Where? I can only find the one that is directly next to the power cable, but do not wish to use it as it gets in the way of the cable and is hard to reach without powering down by accident. On a related note, should I be worried if my old battery had white crusty powder on terminals?

Re: Is there another port? Thinkpad T22 Notebook
There are effectively 2 ports on the USB controller chip, Though that particular model only is connected to one port.
If you need additional ports, you can get a small 4 port USB hub. Or get a PC Card with extra ports. Hub is less expensive.

I assume with "boot menu" you mean the BIOS boot menu (the one you get
to if you press F12 during start up, before the Windows screen appears.)
Go to "Enter Setup"
Go to "Config", click "Enter"
Go down to "USB", click "Enter"
Make sure that "USB Bios Support" is enabled.
(Hit "Enter" again and choose between "enabled" and "disabled")
Hit "Esc" twice to go back to the main page.
Go down to "Startup", click "Enter"
Check if "USB CD" is in the list of boot options or excluded form booting.
Hit F10, confirm any changes you made (click "Enter" for 'yes') and reboot.
Tap or hold down F12 again and you should see the boot option menu again.
Note: I am not 100% sure if you can boot from a DVD externally.
I booted from the internal DVD drive fine with a Linux LiveCD. It is
possible that the T22 BIOS does not support external booting. Check you
version - the latest release from IBM is version 16ET32WW (1.12),
release date 06/03/2004. You find that info here.
I would really appreciate if you could come back here and leave a comment, so I (and maybe others?) can learn form this ;-)
