Re: whats the password on bianca mini cd?

That will be usefull info if I decide to run from a usb stick. I was already thinking doing that. I did find that the only power save feature on the disk is on or off.

Not a written CD problem

After some further research and thought. I can run damn small linux burned from ISO's to the same memorex CD's on both the ibm 600e and the compaq 800mhz. I'm thinking it is related to a bus call. And remember I did try the command line bypasses I listed above. The compaq laptop is a 2001 800mhz Pen...

I think this laptop is around a 98 to 2000 being a 800mhz.
I'll pull the cd player and do a little research for speed.

Wireless works, this is great to be on linux wirelessly. I heard in the news in Nov or Dec 06 that india declared it was going linux. I wonder if they are already hacking at the software, Maybe under attack soon huh? Well, I've enjoyed talking to myself. Guess I'll work on the sound card for a bit. ...

Ndiswrapper console will not install ms drivers for bcmwl5

I booted the live Mint CD but could not get the built in wireless card drivers installed. I stopped and booted the live cd for mandriva to see if it was any better. I was trying to get my wireless working on this gateway laptop. I used the ndiswrapper console in mandriva and got the card at least gi...
