Ubuntu Hardy Heron 8.04 LTS on HP Pavilion tx1000z

A fresh install does almost all the work. The only thing that I had to look for a work around was wireless adapter driver. Following this steps, I got it working with WPA encryption.

For perfect external video outputs (SVCD and VGA), I installed NVidia's driver version 173.14.09, from this site:

The only things that I have not tried, because I don't need them in a regular basis, are: modem, fingerprint reader and touchscreen.
Everything else works like a charm, including bluetooth, I can synchronize my Nokia 6300 with evolution's calendar! I will post a mini howto on the sync later. This feature really changed my life. :)
