That would explain why I get £ when I hit Shift + 3 but all the other keys are the same. But if it's a French Keyboard, why doesn't it have the £ symbol above the 3 instead of the pound symbol?

Has anyone else had any trouble or success with installing Linux OSs?

I know that this laptop supposedly supports dual channel, but I only bought a stick of Kingston 512 because I was being cheap and the thing was on sale. Now I would like to add another stick, but the price is hiked back up on the Kingston and similar chips such as the OCZ I can get for about 30% cheaper, except I know that you're not supposed to mix and match brands
So, being the cheap bastard I am, what do you guys think are my chances of just buying an OCZ stick and have it work in dual channel with the kingston?
Also, I've read some problems with the keyboard latch installing the 2nd memory module, is there anything special I should watch out for? I've seen some vague pictures but it really doesn't give me any idea at all as to how to actually pop the keyboard open - without doing damage to it. THanks.
