Hello all,

Just wanted to post about a successful install of Ubuntu on my Dell C640

Specs:
Intel 1.8GHz
512MB DDR
ATI 7500LE 32MB
Small IBM 5GB HDD
24x CD-RW
Broadcom 4306​

I have tried running Ubuntu, Vixta, and another flavor I do not remember now, but they all failed to make use of my wireless card. But now with the "Cutter" feature, I am now able to securely surf with my wifi card!

I will soon migrate the system onto a 60GB 5400RPM HDD, which will hopefully put a bit more pep in the system.

Just thought I would share,
