Ubuntu 8.04 to the Rescue

Yay!  Installing Ubuntu 8.04 instead of Easy-Peasy fixed my wireless access (basically by downgrading the drivers to ones that worked–theoretically I could have done that by fetching them and compiling them, but without net access I was missing too many pieces).  Now all I have to do is never upgrade again and I’m set!

update: actually, it survived the first update.  It claims to be current for the moment for the build, and wireless still works.  Time to call it a success and a night.
