Vista Lives

So now my laptop is up on Windows Vista RC2. Although not nearly as blinding fast as the Optiplex 745 at work with Core 2 Duo and 1GB of RAM as opposed to my Inspiron 1100 at home.

Here’s something for other people. in Previous iterations, the Belkin PCMCIA Wireless card ( P/N F5D7010 ) has worked after doing a windows update but not in RC2!! So i was stuck on a wored connection for a while. The AU version of the Windows XP drivers was no help. However, if you download the Version 3 of the drivers, you can get the drivers from there. I had to try a bunch of the 6 versions before i stumbled on the working one but now i am happy as larry…

Other than that, things are running smoothly…
