    133133   * However, when used as a Live-CD/-USB where there is no need for running the installer first, the problem continues to exist.
    134134   * '''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.

     136  * Though one could read the [http://ipw2100.sourceforge.net/firmware.php?fid=4 license] in a way, that even distributing the firmware would require the user to consent to it before downloading/buying Haiku. This is why umccullough started getting in contact with Intel itself to get official distribution permission, with no reaction yet. Nonetheless colin sees Haiku well prepared, for the case Intel declines, because it would be easy then to remove the firmware and modify the installer script to download the firmware.
