Offer (May 2006): An infrared modem is offered for free (shipped anywhere in the world) to anyone who posts a patch for the netbook kernel that enables infrared. However, a patch for proper PCMCIA support is considered more critical and will take precedence if posted prior to, or within a few days of, the infrared patch. Please send inquiries or patches to the OpenPsion mail list.

That said, if you have any problems you can always post a query on the mailing list (send e-mail to: email@example.com). Somebody there will likely be able to, but nobody is obligated to, assist you.
