    Method:


    I backed up and nuked the hard disk and then thought - why not try to see if it would be able to be macced up. I had lost the restore xp pro disks from HP.

    Several Leopard distros were not interested as it is AMD Turion64 processor with a dedicated ati radeon mobile chip using system memory around 120 megs. Kallaway however using -a -x -v decided otherwise and installed like a dream!

    The network works as does all the other main things like USB etc. However as so often NO sound and NO wireless net access. Any ideas welcomed as to how to get this going fully?

    The wireless is a standard Broadcom BCM4318 b/g mini-PCI card with two integrated antennas inside the display for optimal reception. It's hard to find a benchmark to set it against but I haven't found a problem yet getting full speed 54Mb/s Wi-Fi access from the places I've been to. It supports all the latest encryption algorisms inc. WPA/PSK etc. Although the card is accessible it is doubtful one can go and change it to a different model without the BIOS disagreeing with the new card. One very nice feature is the blue indicator light on the quick-launch button and on the edge of the notebook that tells you if you've left the wireless on.

    The bios is fairly basic so neglible adjustment there.

    The sound can be got around as I have before by using an external card - not ideal in a laptop - but the wireless...?
