I have a Compaq R3000, and it has a Broadcom 802.11 b/g chipset. I
thought Broadcom chipsets weren't supported, at least not natively.
Every solution I've seen involved the use of ndiswrapper, and that
precludes the use of 64-bit linux. Am I wrong? If so, I'd love to hear
it! :-) I've been dying to get 64-bit Linux installed on it, but I've
avoided the issue due to lack of WLAN support for Broadcom chipsets.
