Doing a first install of xubuntu 10.10, and get this message immediately,

".saned disabled; edit /etc/default/sanedessionsb43/ucode5.fw" not found [87.432089} b43-phy0 ERROR:Firmwarefile "b43-open/ucode5.fw" not found [07.432101] b43-phy0 ERROR:You must go to http://wireless.kernal.org/en/users/Drivers/b43#devicefirmware and download the correct firmware for this driver version. Please carefully read all instructionson this website."

I let it continue and waited, eventually screen went blank then a screen saver popped up, I touched space bar and got a screen which had xubuntu 10.10 but that was all.

* these are the laptop specs,

eMachines M5414 specs, or specifications, are for informational purposes only. Please donít blame me if they are wrong, I got these specs from the OEM. If Iím wrong then they were wrong
