I used to use an IBM 1400i until the screen got so bad I upgraded to
an IBM G40.  I really like both of them.  I never used the T20, but
I've run RedHat on both of mine (I have SuSe 8.2 on the new one now).

They never gave me any IBM-specific trouble that I can think of.

I'll bet you can find a decent one on eBay.  Good Luck!
