I have just bought a Dell Latitude D830 without operating system (Dell 
does'nt sell Linux in Spain), it has costed me more than the same laptop 
with Windows Vista, but I though it would be more compatible with Linux 
that other HP laptops I have bought at my company to delete Vista and 
reinstall Kubuntu.

I have found less compatibility this this laptop that other laptop that 
the other HP Laptops, in particular:

I needed to do "strange things" to enable sound on the laptop
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Gutsy_Intel_HD_Audio_Controller (method A worked)

Wifi is not working, I can't connect to any access point using knetwork 
manager or other methods I have tried.
The card is:
# lspci -v
0c:00.0 Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 3945ABG 
Network Connection (rev 02)
        Subsystem: Intel Corporation Unknown device 1021
        Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 17
        Memory at f9fff000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
        Capabilities: <access denied>

I have searched about this card and ubuntu and there seem to be plenty 
of problems.
Any idea?
