Ubuntu on an Acer Ferrari - Dapper

I used Ubuntu 6.06 on my laptop full time for quite some time. I have since Switched to Ubuntu 7.10 and it is much better. I would not recommend running any other version of Ubuntu.
If you insist on using Dapper Drake, here are the issues that I ran into. This list is incomplete and will never be updated
