Go to linuxiso.org and download Knoppix. It's a debian distribution that
runs entirely on CD. Just download the iso and burn it to a cd then boot it.
It autoprobes all your devices and sets itself up nicely. When you are done,
remeove the cd and boot your old os. Works like a champ. the best one I've
seen yet and I have tried Suse, Red Hat, Mandrake and Slackware. Knoppix
will find all your usb devices, scsi devices, nic cards inluding wireless
lans and video.
