    It's unfortunately a little difficult to understand what exactly you're asking.

    But the bigger problem is that you're using a very very old, unsupported, and discontinued linux distribution, that most people have probably never heard of. The best solution is to install a modern distro, since there have been whole lot of changes since 2004 when ELX was last released.

    My AIM

    Matter is not that of using modern linux as i have 2 hardisk (1 is 40GB(ELX) and other is 80GB(OpenSuse)) the matter is that how i can upgrade a distro
    how hardware get worked in front of my eyes as if i can upgrade a system then i think i can know better how it works
    as other operating system is just a double click to install a driver the linux come a package of full support (your hard disk also work with other sys config.)
    and install them is big challange

    i think that the package linux kernel, ALSA, X11R6 are interdependent miss one of that may cause driver lead to unsupport one

    in Short,
    its not matter to take a distro dedicated to hardware
    how to make a distro to be dedicated to hardware
    cause if i not do that i definitly need 11.1 version for new kernel

    sorry for my bad english
    i hope you understand my feelings/thought
    and thanks for reply
