hmm, is this a pcmcia card? I have bluetooth but no firewire :-(

ah, I have the atheros card (a/b/g) which seems to work very well with 
the madwifi code.

can't see the mouse making much of a difference

Yeah, that should be fine... those warning statements are more of a 
"CYA" clause then anything else. I'm told that versions of VMware 
workstation before VMwareWorkstation-4.5.2-8848 had troubles but this 
version works well for me.

I have the bluetooth, acpi, modem all working and can share code/configs.
The only trouble I had with acpi was a local mysql server running seems 
that it needs to be stopped before hibernating.
pmail me for any of the configs and best of luck.
