I guess my wireless chipset would be.... Dell Wireless 1395 WLAN mini-card.

Well, considering that Dell sells the 1420 with Ubuntu it shouldn't be
very difficult getting it all to work. However, the version they sell
has the Intel wireless 3945 card in it. It sounds like that is not the
one you have. If you could find out which wireless chipset you have in
your laptop, it will help when you get to the installfest.
