G4 Ti 500mhz. External ant mod. Running kismac. Trying to get my Itronix 6250+ to run Fedora for kismet. I was running netstumbler on the Itronix when it had Win98 installed, but most of the networks around here have disabled ssid broadcasting. I relly want to get it running because it's much harder to break than my Ti. Just to test it out I held it up at eye level and gave it a little toss to the floor. It bounced, came to a stop on it's lid, didn't hurt it a bit. I got the "fast" one with a 133mhz Pentium!

Could abuse be a part of why it isn't working?

Read through the "Stumbling Setups" section.
A good way to threaten somebody is to light a stick of dynamite.
Then you call the guy and hold the burning fuse up to the phone.

No the laptop works fine. You can drive a truck over the thing and not hurt it. Try installing linux to a laptop with no internal floppy or cdrom drives. I finally picked up a usb cdrom drive. Still working out the bugs.

Dell Inspiron 8600

Mine has a Pentium M 1.5 (not the P4M which blows compared to this one!), 512 of DDR 2700, 60 gb drive. I opted not to get the DVD burner because if I want DVD's burned I'll get syko to do them for me. While it is a Centrino with integrated wireless (for use at the house), I use a TrueMobile 1150 PCMCIA card for Stumbling and so forth. I use Windows XP Pro and use Knoppix STD .1 for work-related stuff. Biggest thing I like about this series is it's one of the few new laptops that still has a serial port, and the widescreen laptop is pimp with netstumbler or for dvd movies, two IE windows side by side, etc.

Used to have a Compaq Presario 906, but the cd drive/burner crapped out and the hd pretty much crashed. If anyone is looking for a junk/parts laptop (14 inch Presario 900 series/Evo series-type screen in perfect condition) pm me.
