seems to loop when any sound is played. desktop sounds (GNOME
environment), music (xmms), video (totem), doesn't matter. with no
changes they work just fine in 2.6.15 & 2.6.17. guess i should look
into it, but since i want to run the latest kernel it's not so important
at the moment.

which source are you using for your Madwifi drivers? when i "apt-got"
the madwifi package it still didn't detect the card correctly. not at
the machine right now, so i apologize for not posting the message.

same here, but that's not overly important to me.

yes, this thing definitely gets hot if you sit it on your lap to use. i
also notice that the battery life is not real good. possibly i could
change settings and such, but "out of the box" it sucks the power very
quickly. don't think it would make a two hour flight on battery alone
even if i was just doing the most mundane tasks.
