Linux i4965 Wireless Preview on T-61
Last few days I confess I've mostly been using XP on my T-61 (hell I've mostly been working on a blasted Compaq DL-145 and FreeBSD through the lights out management software, which oddly enough Opera seems to work best with since it uses Java Applet for some VNC-ish looking thing for the remote KVM) but I ran across a Fedoraforum thread on getting the 4965 drivers working. It appears you will need iwlwifi and mac80211 and some microcode but it looks like it is now possible. Maybe I'll give it a shot.
