Well the procedure to get the wireless up and running should be 
something like this.

yum -y install broadcom-wl kernel-PAE-devel kmod-wl 
mesa-dri-drivers-experimental ( Optional for nouveau experimental 3d 
support )
modprobe lib80211
modprobe wl

Then dont forget to check settings in System -> Preferences -> Mouse in 
Gnome for the touchpad settings

http://lii-enac.fr/en/projects/shareit/xorg.html ( They are doing this 
on Fedora 12 in the video I think.. )

Ping the desktop list for MPX and status on general touchscreen support  
( Xorg and Gnome. F14 feature maybe for the desktop team to work at as 
in getting touchscreen in good shape? )  and the Kernel list to see if 
we ship the drivers I think both Ubuntu and Suse backported the drivers 
to the kernel they ship and I think I they got touchscreen working on 
either suse or ubuntu for the lenovo s10-3t  ( it might already be in 
kernel we ship atleast the 34 one I think.. )

Hopes this helps.


        I cc you to the reply encase the my post to the test list does 
not make it ( in mist migrating all my mailing lists to gmail )
