Further to my last message, I checked out the site and it's an
excellent resource!  Thanks Karl!  Unfortunately my device is listed
as "grey" - unknown if Linux drivers exists.  An excellent resource
that I must bookmark.  But I'm also still interested in my original
question, the list of hardware (specifically wireless devices)
supported out of the box by F7.  It must be out there somewhere
because they have to be tracking that for development purposes.

Thanks,

Jacques
