Yay, It works!
adamhm: It doesn't look like it's included, but you could try downloading the packages for it from another system & copy it over. Try "apt-get download bcmwl-kernel-source libc-dev-bin libc6-dev" and then just copy the downloaded .deb files over to install manually
I'm writing this from my MacBook running Mint off a USB disk, and I can't believe it :-D. Besides I got my installation in my desktop with The Witcher 2 in it, and all thanks to your giveaway and the forum help.
In the process I've learned a lot. Too many years programming and taking the path of least resistance (ie Windows and OSX as of late) when it came to systems and OS stuff have left me a bit outdated. Now leaving the comfort zone and actually getting things to work feels very good :)
