For the answer to these questions and more, be sure to tune in to the
next installment of "Manny Does Debian."

But all seriousness aside I don't see many people having trouble with
the network card on this oldish laptop (82562GT 10/100 Network
Connection (driver:e1000)?



it says: 

 Ethernet   Yes   With current BIOS works out of the box, else see Notes

The notes say:


  You must upgrade to the newest BIOS, because the F.07< bioses, were
  known to have trouble with ethernet drivers in Linux (and also in
  Windows XP). After that you don't have to add `noacpi` options on boot,
  as it is said in some forums.

You do have an HP Compaq 6720s, right?

At any rate, good luck.
