All newer IBM Thinkpads use a hidden area on the HD to store the OS and all IBM software and drivers for recovery. If you want Recovery CD's, you have to create it yourself (takes 4 hours). If you call IBM support to ask for Recovery CD's, you need a good explanation like "SUSE Linux deleted the hidden Area".
