Just to keep you informed. I was able to install beta-bt4 on my laptop and dual boot. Method of installation had to be DVD, which I built from my ubuntu system. As with all linux distributions, wireless had to be fixed after the initial installation. I am still working on printing from here to HP C309a All Purpose Printer Scanner Fax device.
