Hi Aitor,

Yes, but the end result of enforcing free software purism is a lot of
those so exposed give up and install Windows. I don't blame them. A few
times I've found it *really* hard to install when the installer just
says "you might need nonfree drivers, but them on a thumb drive."

Which drivers? How do I mount the thumb drive within the installation?
In what thumb drive directory do I put them?
