  in a day or two, i'm going to install ubuntu 9.04 on one of my
gateway laptops which has a broadcom BCM4318 wireless chip.  will that
work out of the box and detect and connect to visible wireless
networks, or will i have to manually download and install the
appropriate broadcom firmware as i do with fedora?  thanks.
