We'll see. I think I'm going to upgrade to Edgy tonight. I tried Edgy on a
Thinkpad T40 and it seems to do ok with everything except the Cisco Aironet
Wireless card. (of course that didn't work in dapper either so . . . )

I am running an ASUS Motherboard, but with a x86 not 64bit AMD processor,
and an NVIDIA Chipset. That's why I turned off Hardware checking in the

I'll probably reply back here after I upgrade to Edgy and see what happens.
