Hi: I just got my Vostro 1000 approx 2 weeks ago and Sabayon was the First Linux Distro I could get to work 3D Desktop and all EXCEPT my Broadcom Wireless Chip.
I've installed the Mini Edition at this time, but am dwnld the Full DVD and plan on installing that as soon as I've got it burnt.

Anyway I've got sound NO Prob, But I don't know if the Installs for my Broadcomm Chip will work or not but here is a Link to the Wiki that has some good Ideas anyway, there's about 3 different ways to do it. ... dware#Wifi

I don't know if this will Help but it sounds good anyway.

It's more understandable then most solutions I've seen in other distros.... :lol:
