Debian 6.0.0 and Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG stand-off
Having read several threads regarding issues with getting the Intel PRO/Wireless 3945ABG NIC to work in Debian, I still have a question before I replace my Window 7 hard drive with one onto which I'll be installing Debian 6.0.0: when the debian-installer goes looking for the wireless driver, where should it be? Will I be able to point the installer to my external USB drive? My hardware is an HP Pavilion dv9230us - a laptop - with an Intel Centrino Duo processor, Intel chipset, and nVidia geForce 7600 video subsystem.
I have never been able to get a Debian installation to successfully complete on any system I've ever had, but then I haven't tried in a few years. Fedora 14 32-bit works like a charm on my laptop, so I'm hoping this release of Debian will, too.
I want to thank you in advance for whatever help you might provide for me with this upcoming adventure.
