I’ve dual-booted both my old Dell C600 and my HP/Compaq N6125. The Dell’s running Ubuntu 6.06 and the Compaq is running Fedora Core 5 The Compaq is a Turion 64 ML34 with built-in Bluetooth and 802.11 a/b/g whereas the Dell is a Pentium III and I’ve got an add-on DLink card (don’t have the particulars handy right now but I’ll update this later with it).
Bottom line: Excellent! Got wireless WPA authentication working after “only” a couple of days 🙂 But, it’s fast and has just about everything I need. My only complaint so far: the music clients distributed with Fedora don’t support MP3 🙁
