HP Pavilian dv8280us CoreDuo T2400 2G RAM, wireless card (which does work in XP). Just installed FC-6. Everything seems to work properly except the wireless network card. (I have yet to try a modem-based connection, but I expect it to work as I had that working in FC-4.) FC-4 had had a problem seeing (hearing? ;-) ) the audio card but eventually 'found' it; with FC-6 installed it found it right away.

I desparately wanna get this thing working! TIA for all help.
