-For the audio system to function you need to install [[http://​www.alsa-project.org|ALSA]] version 1.0.14rc4 or higher. At time of writing no Linux distribution has this as default so it will need to be installed manually. With these drivers audio begins to work except for the headphone jack. For the headphone jack to work you can follow the instructions [[https://​bugs.launchpad.net/​ubuntu/​+source/​linux-source-2.6.20/​+bug/​109838|here]]. 
-===== Summary ===== 
-I used the installed Vista tools to shrink the existing installation to the minimum allowed size (about 10 G), then installed Ubuntu (Feisty Fawn). ​ Sound did not work (and still does not).  The delivered Madwifi modules would initially connect, but performance would erode until the connection was dropped. ​ Some users reported success with the XP drivers and ndiswrapper,​ but I was unable to get this working. ​ A bleeding edge Atheros driver was able to sustain a connection at a substandard bitrate which still exceeded my 1.5 Mb network pipe (averaging about 24 Mb).
