Well, I'm one happy camper!
Downloaded and installed Gutsy today and installed it before work. Only a slight snag with the boot loader screens being blank until the GUI started up but that's fixed.
I've been fighting with 7.04, trying to get my wireless card to work with no luck, but this time, I used the restricted drivers, it installed and instantly, I was seeing a wireless signal, and even better, it came back when I rebooted!
I'm now sitting here, listening to my MP3's at work. There's still more to do, but it'll take some time to get everything I want installed and set up the way I want it, but having wireless is a big improvement.
Great work folx. With any luck, the windows partition on my laptop won't get much use from this point onward.
