    Default MacBook Pro C2D 2008 / BT3

    I have booted BT3 from cd, boot is fine, but the internal wireless card is nowhere to be found, an iwconfig renders nada.

    Being rather new to Linux, should i read "out of the box" as "out of the box after doing the usual make / make install stuff"?

    I have a 17" Penryn MBP and nada on the built in card as well. My previous machine was a 15" Santa Rosa MBP and I had it triple boot and it worked great. The 17" Triple Boots but I get nothing on the wireless.
