there is alot wrong here !
just at first glance i think it's that white spaces in the directory linux kernel is a no no in the command
and that "file:" entry shouldn't be there at all -- both are wrong
Code:
cp p80211.o file:/root/KNOPPIX/linux kernel/linux-2.4.26/lib/modules//net
check it out
if i go from within /home/gary
mkdir 'test dir'
i get
/home/gary/test dir
then if i do (like in your file)
mkdir -p file:/home/gary/test dir//net
i get these directories
/home/gary/file:/home/gary/test
and
/home/gary/dir/net
(not the output you really need)

then if i go
cp test.txt file:/home/gary/test dir
it says
cp: omitting directory `file:/home/gary/test'
just the same as you got !
it has no idea where that is
it thinks we want to copy test.txt into a directory named 'file:/home/gary/test'
and remane it 'dir'
or something

now i've got to go erase all these crazy directories i just made

i took all the spaces out of the path (actually i did it everywhere, not just the wirelessnetwork folder) but i still get errors. For an operating system thats supposed to be much better than windows, it seems to be a lot more difficult to get it to do what i want it to. Please help, i'm eager to lean the OS but its a rough start.
