I've spent the last couple of days trying to get F10 to dual-boot with Linpus, the distro supplied with the AA1, to no avail. In the end I gave up and wiped the whole drive, making a clean install of F10. This time I did it from the DVD version, not the LiveCD, but I don't think that has any bearing on the matter. When I re-installed Linpus I found that the wireless wasn't working there either. Then I remembered that originally, when wireless was enabled, there was a tiny light (less than 1mm diameter), and that I couldn't see it. There is a toggle-switch there for the wireless. I moved it several times, then suddenly the light came on. How it happened, I've no idea, but it looks as though the switch was accidentally knocked off, and wasn't re-enabling. I now have 4 bars (85% signal) wireless connection, and I'm a happy bunny - but the tiny indicator light is not on, so there would be no warning if something went wrong. The connection would just be lost, without me suspecting the switch. I believe that's what happened before. Thanks to all who tried to help. Without that return to factory defaults we would never have guessed what the problem was. Anne
