Yes i am :) there is two drivers to make the wireless works.

- ath5k who is free
- and madwifi who use HAL.

HAL was non free, but i've just read the maintainer of Hal released the

I have a ZG5 with an SSD, and there is models with mode RAM soldered on

different controler too). I don't know about the others hardware
