	Sorry, i was making a bug compilation of all the installations/upgrades
i have done at the moment.

	The problem with the wlan was that my chipset is a PrismGT/Duete but
version 2. On all systems it use the prism54 driver it doesn't work,
only with ndiswrapper and loading the windows driver.
	Anyway, always the machines boot, it loads the prism54 driver.

	I was thinking on hoary+1 for this.

Another instalations problems (or not):

* Right now, restricted-modules are no sync with the kernel, so i have
not a working nvidia driver
* Fresh install on Vmware 5.0.0 (last version available) without any
* Update from a semi-updated warty, just two issues:
  - Severals questions about udev scripts updated
  - Problems with cupsys-driver-gimpprint (it just died installing)
* No problems in a fresh install with SATA disks
* libgnome2-perl not installed by default (synaptic required it for some
interactived questions)

	That's all for the moment. Next week i will test with some IBM Xserver
and HP proliants. Good job!
