Some Slackware Install Questions
Alright. Here we go again.
This old laptop is being a pest again, so I'm putting Slackware on it.
And before I start, I'd just like to check some things. Hence here.
Firstly... theory: A partition with the contents of a LiveCD (extracted from the ISO, natch) could be used in the same way as a LiveCD, no?
And if so... what would need to be added to the GRUB (not GRUB2) bootloader, assuming I was using Slackware 13 CD 1 (Which is the install CD, if I read it correctly).
Secondly... Networking. I'm in the process of looking for a new WiFi card, but until I can get one, I'm stuck with an old one that has no native driver, and therefore requires ndiswrapper. Does this come pre-installed or readily available during/after installing? And if not (Though this should probably be in the main Slackware section) how easy is it to install?
Thirdly... I guess you'd like to know some details about the laptop, because I understand there's all kinds of possible odd options that might be needed.
It's an old Dell Latitude C400, which has no floppy or CD or DVD drive, one (damaged and not working) USB port, and no 64 bit processor. It's old, but it's served me well. If anyone needs a little more info, I'll try and find it out for you if I can remember how to do that on a Fedora 12 box - what it's running now.
Thanks in advance.
(Possibly further questions to come later. Sorry. I'm full of them lately)
