Booted the lappy and my /etc/apt/sources.list contains:

deb http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib

deb-src http://ftp.au.debian.org/debian/ testing main non-free contrib

deb http://security.debian.org/ testing/updates main contrib non-free

deb http://www.deb-multimedia.org testing main non-free


apt-cache policy firmware-linux-nonfree
N: Unable to locate package firmware-linux-nonfree


aptitude search firmware

p   dns323-firmware-tools                            - build and
manipulate firmware images for the DNS-323 

p expeyes-firmware-dev      - hardware & software framework for
developing science experi 

i firmware-linux-free           - Binary firmware for various drivers
in the Linux kernel 

i firmware-ralink        - Binary firmware for Ralink wireless cards 

p grub-firmware-qemu         - GRUB firmware image for QEMU 

I must be missing something somewhere.

But I have wireless through the usb dongle and the
firmware-ralink        - Binary firmware for Ralink wireless cards

So I'm not worried at all Chris.

It's not a real problem at the moment, that could change of course and
then I'll just have to find another work around.
