ath5k driver absolutely critical to getting on, took couple weeks to pin down problem. Multi boot config had no probs in XP but could not access through any Linux (Knoppix, Debian, Suse, Ubuntu) good learning experience to be avoided like cancer and chemo if poss. ndiswrap might have done it too but as Linux newbie was beyond me. Online now, love Ubuntu, soon goodbye ms if can.
