Boot menu in live cd lets you pick lots of boot options before a install that carry over into your install. That is how I used ati radeon drivers into my install before install. inxi -G report in terminal will tell you what is being used.

AntiX comes with smxi,sgfxi,and inxi scripts out of the box. Testing can be found at

Everything works out of the box for me. Synaptic package manager and Wicd network manager along with RUTILT comes with AntiX full iso.

In base and core iso, apt-get in terminal and ceni network manager to connect via hard line or wireless (I recommend hard line ethernet and a Window manager and terminal install is done for a core installation iso.)
