I bought a t60 earlier this year. I'd give the laptop a 10 for build quality, size and weight. It's the best mid-sized (14" screen, cd drive, full sized keyboard) laptop I've owned bar none. It also fits in an InCase Apple 13" laptop sleeve. The track pad is awesome.
I had a Dell D600 as a point of comparison. Before that I had a Micron Transport LT.
I'd give it about an 8 or 9 for Linux support. The wireless is so-so. I just use PCMCIA card. It sleeps but only wakes up 2/3 times. Basically everything else works fine.
Bluetooth works but I haven't done much with it other than probe for devices.
Google around, there are a number of how-tos. I'm running fc5.
I'll be happy to answer specific questions if you have any.

My laptop is nearing the end of it's life. 3rd hard drive, wireless starting to get flakey, and now the lid clip is broken so i've got velcro holding down the screen down during transport. It's servered me well and surprisingly all the hardware Just Works with Linux, but it's time to get a new one before it dies completely. So I'm starting the search. Linux compatibility is my highest requirement. Second is screen size, followed by weight (lower is better). I realize the last 2 requirements are almost mutually exclusive.
