[Techtalk] taking the wireless plunge

Thanks for good advice, all. Further adventures will be posted as they occur.

A wee warning for anyone thinking of buying a new Thinkpad: they are great 
machines, this is my third one. But mine came with NO CDs whatsoever- no 
software disks, no recovery disk. The recovery disk is a separate, hidden 
partition on the hard drive. As I use mine as a desktop replacement, and am 
not globe-trotting in a way that would make a recovery CD inconvenient, I 
find this to be a real PITA. It's about 1.5 gigabytes I cannot use.

I called and ordered a recovery CD, they ship them on request at no charge. 
We'll see if I can repartition the drive and get that lost space back. It 
will be a dual-boot with Linux, of course. I would love to not have to have 
winderz, but as long as my customers use it I probably ought to stay up to 
date. :)
