comment Should the usage message go to stderr or stdout?
+1 - this is 100% correct, and I don't see any room for disagreement here.

comment Default configuration I need to change?
hmm, well then I apologise! it will go crazy if root's ~/.ssh folder is world-readable, for example. If Debian ships with /root as 755, and tiger doesn't warn about it, I would take that as a decent indication that it's not an unreasonable setting to operate with.

comment How can I get wireless and ethernet to work with ubuntu?
it might also be worth noting that Broadcom have committed to open-sourcing the drivers for their wireless chipsets (thread.gmane.org/gmane.linux.kernel.wireless.general/55418) and so this situation can be expected to improve considerably over the next year or so :)

ah! okay, can you download them elsewhere, and copy them to this machine (usb thumb drive, etc.)? If so, you can get the packages from packages.ubuntu.com (e.g. packages.ubuntu.com/maverick/dkms). You must install them in the order I've given here, to satisfy dependencies along the way.
