My laptop is R40 with a centrino CPU. I bought it a year ago and began
to use FreeBSD-current until now. Centrino is not a problem, and I can
also use the wireless card with ndis module. I should say that 5.2 has a
lot of great features and can support more new devices, but it is still
not very stable. By the way, I didn't install 5.2 directly from CD, but
upgraded from a 5.1 disc.
