With reference to my post above, I add some photos of adding mSATA ssd to a T42, and also ASSSD ssd benchmark under Win7 after installing. Win 7 boots in 24 seconds.

4 photo: above, 44 pin pata to mSATA adapter from ebay, about $ 5,- under, same adapter with mounted 120 gb mSATA sse disc.

3 photo: the mSATA adapter mounted in the place of the original 2,5' IDE drive

2 photo: the mSATA adapter secured with strong packing tape ( maybe not required, but extra safety)

1 photo: ASSSD benchmark under w7 32 bit with 2 gig ram.
