Knoppix 6.0-Cool

Well I complained and complained on this board a couple of weeks ago because I couldn't get knoppix 5.3 (i think) to recognize my wireless card among other things.

you know when it comes to hardware it is about the kernel ok not the distro. If you must use a live cd then it may come down to the distro. edition. but if you installed a system and then when a newer kernel comes out for newer hardware Every 6 moths or less then you will have more fun.

I am glad to see you hacking away at the keys.
