Simple - my elderly PCMCIA wireless card isn't supported under Linux.
I think a trip to PC world looms....

So I finally have Ubuntu installed on my Thinkpad X30.
It's only taken me 5 months to get around to it!
Of course, WLAN doesn't work (can't find a correct driver for the wireless card) so I have a strand of Cat5 stretching across the living room, but it's a start.
Once again, when I finally have it installed, I'm struck by its speed and simplicity. It's clean, simple and easy on the eye, and It Just Works.
Except wireless. Which Just Doesn't Work.
But the rest does.
