With the Dell Inspiron 1501 installing Ultimate Linux 3.0 Gamer:

When you go into the menu, you go down to Install Ultimate Linux, then hit F6, then Esc.
At the end of the parameter line, typing in "nomodeset" will keep it from doing the funky unviewable screen and allow you to install.

However, there was one screen i couldn't read stuff on. And, my wireless isn't working yet. I have the Windows driver NDISwrapper'ed, but it won't activate for whatever reason. I might just connect it to the router by wire, do updates and install a network manager from the package manager, and see after that if i can get it to work.

More to come in the future, if I get it to work.

Wireless is what i have the most problems with in linux. Really i havnt had an install where my card was reconnized connected and stayed connected. That + sucky wifi + sucky internet servce = playing a game or going on chrome is a daily fight against poor connection, bad drivers bandwidth and lag problems. But really, when was wifi easy?

When you understand what card/chip you have and know what drivers to use.

Never have any issues with my Broadcom stuff, few issues with my Atheros cards aside from an issue with ath5k a while back, but ever since it's been jolly tongue.gif

Actually depending on the distro and how it sets up, even Broadcom can have issues.

The chipset in my 1501 is a Bcmwl, Broadcom-based Dell wireless setup. If the distro loads a certain default driver, it can have hangups.

i'm gonna try and do a sudo apt-get install bcmwl-kernel-source tonight and see if that resolves my issue.

Hence the understanding part. I've never had an issue with broadcom-wl or b43/firmware-cutter.
