I would appreciate any opinions anyone might want to offer as to
whether this can reasonably be done, and how, by a newbie. It would
be really helpful if there was a link to a How-to on this subject
for rank beginners. Everything I've found so far just assumes a
level of knowledge that I don't have, and the lingo is just
Check http://www.linux-laptop.net/ for HOWTOs for different laptops.
I would also like to know whether this could be done without
involving a hard drive at all - if Linux and the drivers and Kismet
could be put onto one CD or DVD, so that I could just boot to that
when I need to run this one program.
Go to google.com and search for LiveCD and you will find LiveCD versions
of different GNU/Linux distributions. There are also the possibility to
install GNU/Linux on a flash memory, if your laptop supports booting
from USB devices.
