I have an old laptop that has just had its hard drive die... no big
deal. One solution - aimed at my children using it - would be to not
replace the HD but use knoppix from a bootable CD (the blurb seems to
indicate there is a basic desktop interface with knoppix?).
However, the system would be using a belkin cardbus/pcmcia
card(F5D7010) to connect to a wireless network. FYI I bought the
belkin card within the last 3 months although i'm not sure if it has
the broadcomm chipset that linux supports (AIUI) or how I could
My basic quesytion is this... does vanilla knoppix booting froma CD
have wireless capability, or do I have to rebuild the knoppix kernel
prior to burning it to diosk or somesuch ... and if so... is there a
straightforward "this is how you do it" guide?
cheers in advance
