I'm dual-booting vista home premium (i have a not for resale copy of ultimate but don't think i need it, yet) and good old xp pro. I'm adding ubuntu 8 and planning to use it with BT2 or 3 (boot via usb or cd). None of the Linux variants support the Broadcom chip in this laptop (version 2 of BCM4318). I went through a lot of pain (ndis wrapper) to get it to work with ubuntu but it's still not very good. I think the best route is to swap the card out with another minipcie card that has good linux support. Since I'm buying a new card anyway, might as well get one that supports packet injection (allows cracking of WEP keys within a few minutes instead of a few hours). At this point, I'm trying to decide between Intel 3945 ABG (as low as $30) vs. Atheros AR5005GS (about $40 on ebay). Both have listed support from madwifi but I'm looking for something easy but will have as much new features (support abg or abgn or bgn) as possible. I'm sure there's one (or a few out there) as packet injection isn't new anymore. I have to say I didn't expect this much "fun" out of a $350 laptop. So far I've upgraded the ram to 2GB and HD to 7200rpm 200GB Momentus drive. I'm not looking to replace cpu but I am extremely interested in pinmodding it. However, from what I've read, it's impossible for the T2310 since bumping the FSB will drop the multiplier to a very low multiplier which will negate any benefit. So far, this little laptop turned from a toy (unexpected purchase since I was aiming for the Asus eepc) to my main computer (my newly upgraded desktop with 8800GT is getting little or no use at all now).
