Ubuntu-Studio-users Digest, Vol 18, Issue 42

The PC I'm talking about is a Dell XPS with nvidia and intel 3954 wireless.

It came from Dell with Ubuntu 8.0.4. All was fine until I started to add
the UbuntuStudio packages, primarily -rt kernel.

While there is lots of info on the web it is not necessarily current or
comprehensive. Thus one source says you need to install the backpatch to
the rt to get the wireless to work and another says 8.0.4 handles it.

At this point I have kernels in /boot that I certainly don't want, probably
don't need, and have little clue as to what they have munged into them.

At this point I'm thinking of wiping the disk and starting from scratch
with the dvd of UbuntuStudio.

Eh, I guess if you have hardware that has lots of tough to install 
drivers. My Dell D510 has been cool after all updates so far.
