Daniel Gimpelevich and I (mostly Daniel) have been helping a guy who came
into the SF-LUG meeting at the Javacat on Sunday with a similar problem.  I
am mostly just talking to the guy on the phone as a welcome wagon sort of
thing, since he is a new member.  Daniel has been doing all the work.
Daniel started with Gutsy 64 bit, but the ethernet wouldn't work, nor the
wifi.  Daniel switched to Debian Sid, when last I spoke with him, and seemed
to be making progress.  Daniel will much more accurate details than I.
