There are no such things as "stupid" questions. However if you think your question is a bit stupid, then this is the right place for you to post it.

No, I don't want to install feisty based distro - I want to install Linux Mint 8 KDE. I've found that link on one of the Ubuntu forums and I thought is relevant. I have tried to install Ubuntu and Mandriva on my laptop in the past and I always had a problem with WiFi drivers compatibility. That's why I want to know is this Linux distribution is compatible with my laptop (WiFi card particularly).
