Just to follow up on my own posting,
I managed to get Skype working on my Thinkpad T43
by going to S=>Options=>Sound Devices
Sound In: Intel ICH6 (hw:ICH6,0)
Sound Out: pulse
Unfortunately the sound quality when I play the Skype Test Call
is not very good -
not as good as Skype on the same machine under Windows XP.
I suspect this is something to do with the microphone setting.
Also the settings seem to be lost when I re-boot.
Still, that was quite a lot of progress for me ...
