"Installing Debian GNU/Linux on a Thinkpad X121e" -

You say " i see lspci... wlan adapter listed..." ...Y...e...s... WHAT?

Have you done an lspci -k? It will list each device along with the kernel module if loaded.
lspci -v will give you verbosity. Are the devices working for you?

Have you setup the hot keys on the keyboard? If so? How did you go about doing this?
I have read some Wikis that suggest installing HAL in combination with XBINDKEYS or a modified ACPI daemon.
I have a ThinkPad T400 type 2768-12u with the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3470 turned off.
