good evening John.

interesting point you make. sounds very reasonable. i have never made
an install to a laptop with wifi before, minimal or full, so i have no

have installed wifi to an established system, but that is whole
different pond to to play in.

there is an option to add additional networking, but does not seem to
apply to wifi, so i do not believe install i was using is wifi aware
and i need to pull iso Johnny referred me to.

intended to pull it after my last post. saw your post, felt i should
read it first.

have you tried the 7 32 bit?


peace out.
