  1. Have you got the wireless networking and the built in modem working?

    I just installed Kubuntu on one of these for a friend and I have not sorted those out yet.

    I know it can be done, I was wondering how difficult it was.

  2. If your friends laptop use the broadcom wireless, you can use ndiswrapper to make it work.

    As soon as i have the time, i’ll jot down the steps :p
