using usb wireless kb/mouse in frugal dsl install.
I have an old pII 300 mhz 48ram laptop running dsl installed to hardrive (frugal). I want to be able to plug in a wireless kb/mouse after it boots up and use it. I so far am only able to do that if it is plugged in before the install. once its installed even if i plug it in before bootup it wil not use them. I do understand that its a noob question, but i need help...
also i read somewhere that there is a flavor of linux that does not need mounting of usb or cdrom fs. it does mount and umount automatically. is ther any way to implement this in dsl?
