Knoppix Hard Drive Installation Question
After trying to get my wireless card setup on my laptop under linux for about the last 12 hours, I was about the give up. Then I decided to check out Knoppix-STD, the live distro, and see if my card would work under there. Sure enough, it did (Enterasys RoamAbout which uses Orinoco drivers). It worked perfectly fine right out of the box, so to speak. I have decided that I am going to use knoppix-std's harddrive installation option, which is currently in progress. However, I have a question - once I finish installing knoppix, will I be able to upgrade its kernel without ruining the old configuration? If I were to download the 184.108.40.206 kernel, and then use "make oldconfig", would it preserve all of my modules and let me continue to use my wireless card even after I start booting from the new kernel? I dont want to mess anything up once I finally get the card working, so I think its safer to ask first rather than try it without knowing what might happen.
