Best LiveCD with Wireless support.

I am looking for a LiveCD that will support the default wireless card of a Dell Inspiron 6000. I think it is a Intel Pro/Wireless 3945 802.11 a/g Mini Card Wireless

Anyways, what is the easiest LiveCD to use? I just need it to be able to use a browser. If it has more, that is ok, but the ability to pick up my wireless card and have a browser are my only concerns. It would also be awesome if it could fit on a mini disc, but doesn't have to.

Try using Ubuntu. The installer CD boots as a liveCD. In my experience, the wireless support of Ubuntu is good especially with the intel pro/wireless cards.

Fedora 8


I also have an Intel Pro/Wireless card.

Fedora 8, which has been recently released, is the Live-CD that best supported my pro/wireless card. Make sure you download the Live-CD.
