Hello.  I recently obtained a used laptop, which I fixed up.  It is
relatively good (IE, a Pentium IV) so I'm not too worried about it
being able to power the applications I'm hoping to run.  Generally, I
prefer using a less cluttered machine with minimal software.  So, I
loaded the laptop with lxde. In doing so, I made sure to install the
non-free firmware files from a usb stick.

In trying to find wireless connections, I used wicd, following the
steps at http://wiki.debian.org/WiFi/HowToUse#Wicd.  This, however, did
not work.  It simply stated that no network connections had been
found.  However, I then reinstalled gnome on the laptop, and the network
software there did find various network connections (aka wifi).  So,
I'm wondering if anyone knows how I can get the same functionality
within lxde using wicd (or using something else).
