Also, with the Nevada type builds, you can test hardware support
directly by booting, and if the X Window installer shows up and it
detects your NIC, you are set.

Latest nevada include wireless support too. I believe IWI 0.5 supports
Mac Book Pro, stay with IWI 0.3 for a Dell laptop with "Dell" wireless
