Dell Latitude D630
The Dell D630 is a business line laptop made for corporate users who have a need for durability. This article will tell you how to get the basic components of the laptop running with Arch.
You can follow the Official Arch Linux Install Guide to get yourself up and running. I did a pretty standard install, keeping the XP partition that came with the laptop as my company requires all work computers to have Windows on them.
The new installers will detect the Intel 3945 card and give you the option of installing the drivers and module for it but I didn't have any success doing that. It's good to have a wired connection to begin with just to make sure you get everything up and running.
