First, my apologies for making it seem like I was criticizing you guys.
That was not my intention, although on re-reading what I said, it sure
looked like it. My comment was really aimed at Linux itself out of sheer
frustration. When it works, it's as easy as Windows, but just try to get
that last piece of hardware to work, and you could be in for trouble.
Did I say easy as Windows? Huh? Well, I recently introduced my
11-year-old son to Linux (the hard way: his machine died, and now he has
to borrow mine). He says he likes it better than Windows XP. Of course,
he has me for his Sys Admin, so that may count for something.
Again, sorry if I insulted anybody. The advice was really spot-on, and I
now have working wifi on the laptop thanks to that advice. Thank you all.
