I am a linux newbie and just recently switched from Windows XP Home Ed SP2, to Ubuntu 6.06.
Have been comtemplating the move for some time but reluctent. I use a Sony VAIO VGN FJ270 and I must say that the install went wonderfully.
I actually have but one issue, my wireless configuration. I have Intel Wireless/PRO 2200bg chip set
in my builtin WLAN. Any help with this would be appreciated. I have tried the ndiswrapper route
and ran into several snags. No trouble with the software, just with the installation and configuration. Thanks for any help you can provide and thanks for the service, it is and will
continue to be a great help to newbies like myself.

If you want to try the Linux driver go here: It will tell you what to do to install it.

....Make the switch, you can do without Windows
