comment Ubuntu on MacBook Pro
@TK Kocheran: That's fair enough. I note that WLAN on the slightly older MacBook Pros under Lucid 10.04.1, not the vanilla 10.04 is noted as "works, with remarks". Lucid is still pretty good IMHO. I have at least one machine here running it.

comment Broadcom STA Wireless Driver Fails to install
This doesn't answer your question but would you consider using the B43 module? Does that even work?

comment Live USB faster than full install
I found this exact same behaviour. Well, I was running a Live CD session, but apart from that, I know exactly what you're talking about.

comment How can I play mp4 files from a USB live iso?
I thought this was, sorry. Always has been a general thing in the past. This post is marked as 'solved' for what it's worth. Hope it's some help.

+1 - Good suggestion. It has a few quirks but is the best I've used in GNU/Linux.

comment How do I boot a minimal CD ISO from a USB stick and use a wireless driver
I imagine the Apple one will work but it'll just be over-priced. You could maybe ask at the store.

comment Regularly losing wifi connection
There are quite a few questions relating to the BCM4313 chipset performance problems. Here's one picked at random. Do a search on this site for BCM4313 and you'll find an answer.

+1 - This is the way I'd do it. Here's a link to the mini.iso varieties available.

So far as I know, if you're not using the mini.iso you mention there's no way to do this. You could do a lot of apt-get remove once you're done installing the 'full' version mind you. It's obviously not ideal though. What wireless chipset do you have? Do you have an ethernet port?

comment Remove unity from 11.04
It hasn't been the smoothest ride IMHO. @Alain: 'Ubuntu Classic' didn't work on my hardware that well either. Unity. Well, I should keep my mouth shut I guess. It is free after all.

I think this is a pretty good question and I imagine a lot of people run into this same issue.
