  Precise non-pae mini.iso is missing b43 wireless module.

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  My Pentium M doesn't support PAE, so my only install option for
  Precise is the non-pae mini.iso. Unfortunately this network-based
  install media does not include the b43 wireless kernel module for
  Broadcom wireless cards (and I mean the file /lib/modules/$(uname
  -r)/kernel/drivers/net/wireless/b43/b43.ko which can be loaded via
  'modprobe b43', not the proprietary firmware which must be installed
  via firmware-b43-installer package).

  This makes it impossible for me to get a wireless connection on the
  mini.iso, which is essential since the installation is over a network.
  Since the mini.iso is the only way to install Ubuntu Precise on a non-
  pae computer, this therefore makes it impossible for me to install
  Ubuntu onto my computer.
