I'm running Fedora Core 3 on an old (bought in 1999) Toshiba Satellite 2805-S401, equipped with a D-Link DWL-G650. ndiswrapper works like a charm.

I have a toshiba A45-S151, I've ran SUSE 9.1 personal on it. It worked like a charm, I'm in the midst of getting slack 10 up and running on it, but it dose look promising.

Off the top of my head I can't remember exactly which card It uses, but I do know that SUSE reconigzed it right off the bat. I'll post tomrrow morning when I'm off work.

RT2500 PCI built-in on the Averatec 3225HS sub-notebook. Slackware 10.

Using new opensource native linux driver just released as part of the rt2x00 project.

Although, ndiswrapper works just as well. In fact, there are some features that I can't use yet with the native driver, but I'm sure they are coming.
