Probably a dumb question, but I want to avoid any serious mistakes if possible -- I took delivery today on a new T61; also have a Thinkpad advance mini dock, which arrived a week or so ago. I'm assuming that I set up the laptop first? Then the mini dock? Have never used such a tool, so am a bit lost, and neither of the install sheets addresses what to do in this case.
Also, if there are any common install errors to avoid, would appreciate hearing about them. I am not new to computers, but new to Lenovo etc. TIA

StormyMountains, welcome to the forum,
You assume correctly, set up the ThinkPad first without the Mini-Dock. Once you're happy that it's running OK, shut down and connect it to the Mini-Dock. It is important that the Mini-Dock is powered. Once you have cold started your T61 in the Mini-Dock and allowed to recognise all the ports you should be able to "Hot - Dock / Undock" at will.
