And Alan, I will try to get you these other (seemingly > minor, as they didn't affect the card working) errors by tomorrow. I will try if I have to do another re-install.

Normally I would agree, but these guys are being sold for $399 at Bestbuy and I know many people in my company are going to buy or have bought one already. We all use CentOS as that keeps us familiar with what our servers run :) Also, when a someone is looking for the right laptop to use with CentOS, they look at places like the wiki's laptop howto for user experiences. I know I did. If this laptop is there and known to work and the price is so low... why would one NOT run out and buy this exact model? > One important thing when mentioning laptop hardware on any forum--(as a > Fedora Forum Mod, I'm constantly telling people this and editing their > thread titles) is that as laptop manufacturers are notorious for > changing hardware without notice, it's always best to use a thread title > like Wireless card <model> doesn't work, rather than something like > <laptop model> wireless doesn't work.
