WOW! I am absolutely knocked out!

I just installed Fedora 7 on my HP dv1220us laptop.

When originally I put FC4 on the laptop, getting the video and
wireless up and running required a lot of digging and manual

BUT with the installation of Fedora 7 on the dv1220us:
* It saw and correctly configured my laptop's 1280x768 widescreen.
* My onboard wireless (ipw2200) came up as soon as activated
  NetworkManagerDispatcher and NetworkManager.
  ? Yet to see how the setup (supplicant) works with the LEAP/PEAP
    authentication -- anybody already done this please offer your

So far it looks great.  I'm sure there are some things I will stumble
on that are not what I'm used to, but so far I am VERY IMPRESSED!
Thanks Fedora team.  Thanks HP.  Thanks Intel for the Linux friendly
wifi, audio and video chipsets.

Just one user's experience for whatever benefit it may be to others.
