Hello Everyone: I just wanted to post this in case someone searches the forum for info. I just installed PCLinuxOS 2010.1 onto a Dell Inspiron 1625 laptop and did a complete update and installed Open Office for a friend of mine and everything worked out of the box. It picked up the Broadcom BCM4312 wireless and also the wired ethernet, got the video right with no help from me and it is running great. Sound works and it starts and shuts down with no issues. Hope this helps.
