    I'm trying to mount the apple installer cd on debian linux. don't ask. I cannot for the life of me get that f&*$# to actually read it and stay mounted. it didn't like iso9660

    by any chance anyone who has experience with using linux on a macbook, experience with loading drivers would be very much appreciated. Thanks.

    ok so you type:
    Code:
    lspci
    you should see something like:
    Code:
    02:00.0 Network controller: Broadcom Corporation BCM4321 802.11a/b/g/n (rev 03)
    
    "Wireless" "802.11a/b/g/n" should be the major clue in.

    so use google and and the linux drivers:

    Code:
    http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php
    so thats one mystery solved.

    just fyi this didn't work. It said the drivers are wrong for the hardware.
