    If you install standard Ubuntu on a Dell machine, can you get these drivers off the Dell Ubuntu CD, or elsewhere online, without having to reinstall with the Dell version?

    I suppose if you know enough to single out those specific packages/drivers from the custom Dell-Ubuntu image, but I'm not familiar w/ doing this. Why would you just pull the drivers off it when you could just install it and have everything working by default. I personally would like Dell to offer a install w/ less pre-installed applications, but until they do I'm stuck removing un-wanted applications post-install.
