the key stroke problem well you know it is up to you to configure it. Mine is f2 on a dell which drove me nuts. read this all the way down. Then you will find the distro debian mint 10 seems to have it a little better.

Why do I never get theses questions in Slackware Linux

BTDT.

Drove me nuts too. Didn't know I'd hit the key, thought the wireless was broke and was dreading the warranty call.

Two weeks later I actually noticed the key and hit it on purpose and the wireless was back.
