I would like to add my machine to the list. I have downloaded the template 
and plan to use it on the wiki eventually.

But I have a couple of questions.

1. I have Hoary working and want to install Breezy for testing. Is there a 
preferred method? I could download Colony 3, burn a CD, and do an Install. 
Or, I could edit /etc/apt/sources.list and change everything from hoary to 
breezy and simply do an apt-get dist-upgrade. Presumably each one could have 
different results. What is recommended?

2. Dell can be a bit strange with models. One Latitude D800 could have a 
different video card, different NIC, different wireless from another D800. 
What should I do to see if my hardware is sufficiently like the other D800 
in the wiki to have our results combined?
