Thankx, So that does work with 64bit Linux? I know the drivers that came with windows xp are 32bit.

The drivers should be 64 bit... I'm fairly certain that's where I got them for the guy I set it up for.

I couldn't get it to work with bcmwl5, but netbc564 (?) works just fine. Apparently it's a generic broadcom 64-bit driver, if I understand correctly...
