not for me it doesnt' - even with this new kernel, i need that 
i8042.nomux param to make it work properly.

the internal WiFi works fine, even the front push button for radio on 
and radio off work fine with ndiswrapper and EL4 / FC4 / Rawhide kernels 
- I've not had a problem at all.

considering the bcm driver needs 2.6.15 - anyone tried it with these new 
kernels that dave is putting out there ?
