Please help setting up AntiX derivated from MEPIS


Hi I am setting up AntiX in a old laptop that doesn't have a working cd tray so I did a installation in a different computer I tested everything and all was fine in the computer I did the installation.
Then I did a exchange of hard drives, installed the hard drive in the target laptop and everything seemed to work until I tried to go online.
I understand the two laptop have different type of wireless and Ethernet cards.
So my question is who can I have Antix to load the modules for the Ethernet card and wireless card in the computer I have.

Is there a kind or rc.conf file in Antix that I can edit and put the information manually?

This are the type of card in the computer
Code:
Ethernet controller: Broadcom Corporation NetXtreme BCM5705_2 Gigabit Ethernet (rev 05)

Network controller: Intel Corporation PRO/Wireless 2200BG [Calexico2] Network Connection (rev 05)
I will appreciate all advices, thank you.

I answered this question in your other thread.

By the way, antiX is a spin off of Mepis, not is successor.
