Ubuntu/lucid on hp2133

Tonight I wiped my hp2133 running Ubuntu/karmic and installed lucid.

The only pain was of course getting the wireless card to work. That simply meant getting the Broadcom firmware into /lib/firmware/b43

The instructutions on http://wireless.kernel.org/en/users/Drivers/b43 were right on. You will need to build b43-fwcutter from source pulled from the git repo, but the commands are provided.
