Forget it. Found the driver. Installed it and I'm happy again. HOWEVER I
can't understand why Synaptic and aptitude can't find it never mind
install it. I had exactly the same problem last week with 8.04 and
solved it the same way after a kind person here gave me the direct link
to the intel driver.
Got any ideas....yes all the repositories are enabled.
