No go, I failed to get wireless working (Broadcom bcm 4321) so I'm now
trying Ubuntu, failing which, it's back to openSUSE for me...

Strangely, both Ubuntu and Fedora are showing me the model as 4312 and
not 4321 which openSUSE's lspci (and MS Vista) shows... in any case, I
see that the kernel 2.6.24-rc1 and on will have a free "b43" driver,
it'll just be a matter of getting the right firmware I guess...

Oh well, I'll wait for the next round of distro releases in Apr/May
before testing/installing all three again...
