The Broadcom chipset for the pre-installed wireless card wasn't supported, but I purchased an external rum(0) usb stick (Hawking HWUG1), and wireless is now working great.
Now, on to getting X to work properly. See below for the relevant part of the dmesg:
vga1 at pci1 dev 0 functkion 0 vendor "NVIDIA", unknown product 0x0a29 rev 0xa2
wsdisplay0 at vga1 mux 1: console (80x25, vt100 emulation)
wsdisplay0: screen 1-5 added (80x25, vt100 emulation)
azalia0 at pci1 dev 0 function 1 vendor "NVIDIA", unknown product 0x0be2 rev 0xa1: apic 2 int 16 (irq 11)
azalia0: no supported codecs
azalia0: initialization failure, detaching
NVIDIA is mostly unsupported (and infamously unhelpful: http://lists.freedesktop.org/archive...ch/049749.html
), and trying to find out if there is any way I can get X to boot up. When running configure on X, I noticed that it does list a slew of NVIDIA drivers, but of course, mine is not listed:
> X -configure
> cat /var/log/Xorg.0.log
(II) NV: driver for NVIDIA chipsets: RIVA 128, GeForce DDR, GeForce MX 460... etc, etc, etc.

(EE) No devices detected.
Fatal server error:

Is there any where I can go from here? Any suggestions would be appreciated. I'm hoping to get X up so I can install a WM. Thanks!
