Dell Inspiron 8000 Unique Situation
My friend bought my Dell Inspiron 8000 from me. Now I want him to install linux and I just need to ask you all a few questions.
Basicaly, A couple of things
-Can I get the sound working and how?
-I upgraded the video card to a supposedly unsupported radeon 7500 64mb so now the ATI drivers (at least under windows) for the I8100 (which came with the 7500) wouldn't install because of the bios. So i was using the omegacorner.com drivers, which are only for windows.
-Can I get the inegrated networking going.
-Can I get pcmcia wireless going.
What he would be doing is basicaly IMing, net, word proccessing and some gaming: StarCraft, Diablo II, Deus Ex, on wine. So can I just run the video card on Xfree86 or do i need a special driver. If so is that dirver available. I am working with Ubuntu Distributions (Debian with Gnome and a few other nifty things)
