An EASYNOTE E3250 from Packard Bell. So where would I find those reverse engineered drivers? Just researching :smile:

I'm still working on the CD-rom, buffing it up with a nail polisher (what are those things called?) and polishing it with a paste made it bootable :approve: it seems to be installing windows right now....

The drivers are included as kernel modules on the cd or actuallly built into the kernel.

I haven't see anyone on the web with problems. The only complaints that people had were with the video card, but they were also using a really old version of linux. I did a search specifically for the video card and it looks like it is well supported now.
