Anyone have any experience in installing Ubuntu onto the Vaio listed
in the subject line. I've been offered one of these machines for a
reasonable price but it's of little use to me unless it's reasonably
well supported under Linux. I'm specifically thinking about the
wireless functionaility - I've no idea of the chipset which Sony uses
in this model.

Anyone have any horror stories or joyful tales of success with VGN-A
series laptops?
