1 I agree on the USB CD thing - I've used a couple of custom CD's in the
2 past (on a Firewire drive) that were much easier. I suppose it's hard
3 for the devs to test every quirky hardware configuration though.
5 All three pieces of hardware you mentioned should work fine. It could be
6 a bit interesting if you don't have an internet connection until the
7 wi-fi card works though :)
9 (a) I had one of these in the past - it seemed to work fine as an Intel
10 8x0 chipset.

13 (c) I believe this is supported by the ipw2200 project. I can't give any
14 details though.
16 Good luck!
