    123123 * Main issue is that the license requires that end users are taking notice of the license before using the firmware. [[BR]]
    124    * Colin, mmadia discussed the topic on distributing the firmware along with Haiku. Based on the [http://www.intellinuxwireless.org/?n=faq&s=license#license_1 3 bullets] we are consensing that distributing and using the firmware out of the box is feasible. But it would require that the Haiku Installer includes a notion about the respective Intel firmware license.
    125    * TODO: How to handle the live cd case, where there is no installer triggered.

     126   * But installing and using it right during boot is problematic. The user *must* have a chance reading the license first.
     127   * For the Haiku-CD-installation scenario this could be solved be adding the license to the Haiku Installer.
     128   * However, when used as a Live-CD/-USB where there is no need for running the installer first, the problem continues to exist.
     129   * '''Proposed solution''': Shipping the firmware with Haiku along with a script, allowing the user to install the firmware when he wants to. The installer script enforces license conformance, then. Note: Read "One to rule them all" section down the page.
