[ros-users] ROS electric install notes - turtlebot (x130e)

Attached are some rough notes I made about a clean install of electric on a  
Turtlebot. I am using a turtlebot with the  Lenovo x130e laptop so this is 
specific to that setup.

As with my fuerte notes, I apologize in advance for not attributing the 
information correctly, as  most of it was pulled from ROS.org or its peers 
(answers.ros.org,  etc.) during my installation(s) and testing. This is still in 
rough draft form but I wanted to get it out  there to see if it was helpful or 
not. I intend a more complete draft  with proper attribution in the near future.

I found that electric had a few workarounds to deal with using Ubuntu 11.10. One 
I did not tackle is the "problem" with the wireless scanning for networks 
periodically when the SSID and BSSID were not the same on the access point the 
laptop connected to. It didn't drop connectivity to the turtlebot, just paused 
it occasionally. 

Thanks in advance for taking a look at this.
