Switching to Ubuntu

I had Open Suse 10.0 installed in my laptop. I was planning to switch to ubuntu for long and when DapperDrake got released, trying to get some freetime was proving to be difficult.
The installation was not straight forward for me. I had LVM configured in the previous Suse installation which I had to completely remove for the ubuntu installation to go ahead.
After installation I was nearly shocked to learn that root account by default is disabled. I enabled the root account using sudo passwd root. I am still trying to fix my ndiswrapper for Broadcom 4306 802.11g/b WLAN.
