In all distros using 2.6.27, really.

From discussion, it appears the driver will be disabled in the Beta
(though it is not recommended that you run the Alpha, even from live
cd).  Work is being done to sort out the issue with Intel's driver.
There were a few messages to the list recently with patches that needed
to be tested.

I have no idea how the wireless driver is.
