can't save wireless network configuration

Yoper, ipw2200 drivers:

when i open kwifimanager, and then open configuration editor (enter the pw etc) and enter info. click "apply" and "ok" then reopen the app, all the info has dissappeared.

i get the same result if i go through the "kde control centre" to the app, and click administrator mode, enter info, click apply.

i think i found part of the problem, and it may affect other posts i have. Yoper does not seem able to get a grub installation right to save it's life.

seems that it is not mounting my /boot partition during installation, but instead has writtine a /boot directory in my / partition. since many attempted settings may have been affected by this, i am reinstalling and renaming /boot directory and mounting /boot partition as /boot in fstab right after installation.

if this resolves the problem, i'll post here. i can't imagine it could make things worse ;-). i'll keep you posted.

thx all,
