lemur2: that's a shame. It sounds like there may genuinely be some kind of kernel issue with the Wind, then. I'm not sure what, though. Have you filed a bug?

I've made progress here. In my "spares" box I found an old CD drive. I temporarily dismantled my USB external hard disk, disconnected the IDE interface and re-connected it to the spare CD drive IDE interface, burnt the XFCE Mandriva One LiveCD, popped it in to the spare CD drive, connected it via USB to the MSI Wind ... and away it went.

It was just booting from the USB flash drive that was a no-go.

So far, Mandriva One 2009.0 is the very first Linux distribution I have tried that has correctly detected the wifi chip on the MSI Wind U100 from first boot of the liveCD.

Hooray! Kudos to Mandriva.

I'm installing it now. I have yet to get to test the bluetooth, but so far, so good!
