...a rambling aside to life in general.

    Inspiron Mini 9 is in the he-ouse.

    Thanks for the link to the encrypted directory. I had no idea something like that was built into Ubuntu.

    Yeah, I have discovered most of this, and I was lying about the resolution...'cause it was 1024x600.

    I was talking about the encrypted private directory feature in 8.10:
    Finally, you are right, but something got borked somewhere and jockey still offered those drivers to me. I figured it out when I had them deactivated and had no wireless at all.

    The display seems to be at 800x600
    You should be able to do 1024x600. At least mine does with Ubuntu 8.10.

    I immediately put in Xubuntu 8.10 alternative cd so that I could get the encrypted private directory
    Encrypted private directory? Are you talking about the Dell partition?

    Looks like the broadcom chip in 8.10 is using the wl driver family, but jockey will offer loading of the Broadcom SDA wireless driver
    I'm guessing these are the same drivers. The wl is Broadcom's proprietary Linux driver. In theory the b43 driver should work, but my experience with that one is iffy.
