Everything else seemed to work ok, it looks like a nice lookin distribution.
Ok couple of things....
One in as far as general Linux quesitons try the linux and laptop folder farther down, youll find a fair amount of people with good knowledge on the topic
2, go Suse all the way in my opinion. Though dont use their live eval CD or whatever, try o get your hands on the Suse Pro version, that will be your best bet.
3. Your Wireless card, there are several sites that I dont have right on hand to give you that will tell you if there is a driver out for them or not, Do a serach and see what you can find out in that regard, knowing linksys it is most likely your wireless card is not supported under linux.
There is one other option though and that is to try the linuxant driverloader, but it costs money and may not work, but it tries to install the windows drivers and run those under linux, and does a decent job with it, so try out their evaluation license first and make sure your card works first, then decide.
Try to find the open source version of the driver first though, itll save ya money and that is the whole point of going to linux right
Other than security, stability, ......
Yea anyways, post back any other questions.
