Getting b43 and audio on Slitaz


I have installed Slitaz from the "loram-cdrom" CD. I am impressed by Slitaz's performance on my 233mhz 64mb RAM old PC.

You can read more about my system and its specifications/drivers here:
http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...pec-pc-936393/

The trouble is that I need to get my b43 network card working WITHOUT using another network adapter/connection. (This PC is too old to have an Ethernet port!).

Some nice folks from this forum managed to get the networking working on AntiX (see the link), but the instructions do not work for Slitaz.

Any help?

I have. The trouble is that the guide does not make it clear which steps require a pre-existing internet connection (ie. Ethernet port), which I do NOT have.

Also, using the built-in "wifibox" configuration utility yields no results (I selected b43 for driver and b43-firmware for firmware).

Any other ideas?
