Ok, strange problem after using the fix for function keys here
But, my eth0 totally disappeared (as in, not listed for lspci).
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi=Linux"
So, was recommended to change the value to:
eth0 came back, but function keys turned off again.
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash acpi_osi='!Windows 2009'"
Now, when you use acpi_osi=Linux it will set the wlan off within the BIOS, but it still works within lucid.
The only thing I really care about is having the switch to toggle the FRIGGEN touch pad on/off.
Any help would be appreciated; I can hardly type with this thing enabled.
