Re: [vox-tech] WiFi Part II

One Suggestion:

I must say that wireless support in redhat/fedoracore was not what I
was hoping for.  I think that SimplyMEPIS is a great distro that has
good wireless support.  I had alot of trouble getting redhat/fedora to
recognize my intel centrino/IPW2100 builtin card (this was with fc2 i
believe, so it might have gotten better).  SimplyMEPIS 3.3.1 recognized
my card and had it configured right on first boot.  It's a bootable
linux distro (like knoppix), and it has an easy install script (if you
want to do a HD install).  Might save you from buying another card, but
maybe not.  I would boot it once to see if the card works.

SimplyMEPIS really has some great stuff; I give it two thumbs/five

I believe that unarmed truth and unconditional love will have the final word in reality. That is why right, temporarily defeated, is stronger than evil triumphant.
