I had a very hard time getting the wireless and flash to work from fedora 8, spent hours at it.

Anyhow, ubuntu has been excellent so far and once i installed the non-free drivers most things worked. But i like to make sure my wireless is working before i need to use it.

Here is what i got when i ran
lspci -v | less

Edit: Just realized there was no mention of the broadcom hardware i have.
Question: Is broadcom and nividia the same physical unit? Are they both "physicalware"?
