Okay, then I was told wrong.  I talked to someone in BA006 a few weeks ago and 
he said I would have to install Clean Access, even with Linux.  (Maybe he 
didn't know what Linux is?)

That's what I do at BYU, so it's nothing new.

Ahhhh, that would make a difference if it's not covered by the school.  Thanks 
for clarifying that.  Course then it doesn't make sense why UVSC doesn't just 
fund wireless.  Ah, politics.  It's good of UVSC OIT to realize the need and 
just do it.  I give you a thumbs up there.
