Default Fedora Core 14 on Toshiba Satellite L655D-S5109

Hi folks

I've got an option to buy and I want to know if FC14 runs on a Toshiba Satellite L655D-S5109

In particular, I want to make sure wireless is supported without a whole lot of grief and agony on my part.


Specs are at the end of the email.

Thanks in advance

Mark

If you want to ask if a certain wireless chipset is supported, you'll
have to tell us what chipset it is.

It's my feeling that the majority of wireless cards are pretty well
supported now. I just put FC14 on a new HP laptop, and even though the
chipset in it was listed as being one that was not supported as of about
a year ago, it works just fine, and didn't take too much fiddling.
