So after a long time (4 months) I ve started working with my favourite disto again! Yeah its Debian now, but this time its "etch" and not "sarge". I tried Ubuntu Dapper Drake in the intermediate time. The primary reason which kept me away from Debian these days is my laptop HP Compaq nx6110 which had a Broadcom bcm4318 card which did not have any free drivers and firmware. Hence I was desparately searching for a solution to get my wireless card working, since both in office and home I have wireless connectivity.
At last today I figured out how to configure the wireless card, of course in Debian etch.
