Wireless is the bigger problem. And something I really don't understand. Maybe that I'm just not 'getting it'. [rant]I don't run Mandriva for several reasons, but! the LifeCD picks up my rt2500 perfectly. Once installed to HD, my wireless is dead as ever. As always. Dead. I spend hours, if not days in pure almost solid frustration. Grrrr... Nurse! I need to lie down again[/rant]
Anyway, you'd be raising expectations about wireless, when you advertise Vector as 'build for lappies'. You'd be needing someone who knows his/her wireless. Dunno, is there a wireless expert in the house?

You might have already seen this, but easuter has made a howto for wireless:

Thnx Dweeberkitty, for responding. I knew easuters HowTo, but I hadn't tried it... yet. I've tried many others though.
Not to derail this thread I'll make this a subject of it's own.
