    After full install - a couple questions


    My specs of laptop are here

    1.
    I cannot get the audio to work or the WiFi to work. I'm not really concered about the Wifi because I just ordered an Orinoco Classic Gold. The audio is a SoundMAX intergrated. Anybody know how to get that to work?

    Lilo is working great but I would like to mod it. Currently on boot it says:
    Linux
    Linux(2.4)-1
    Linux(2.6)-2
    WinXP/2K(hda1)


    I would like it to be
    XP
    Linux

    With XP being default. (and just using the 2.6 version of linux)

    Having a step-by-step how-to would be nice on modifying this. I guess I don't know how to "commet out" something once I get into the /ect/lilo.conf. I have tried to use the suggestions on this site, but no luck.

    I have an HP laserjet 2 that is hooked to my XP box via LPT. It is shared out for other windows systems. I'm not shure if it can be done, but I would like to hook up on that so I can print via my network on Knoppix.

    I have a CDRW/DVD combo. Whats the easiest way to - burn CD's and watch DVD's? Do I already have the apps needed?
    For instance, When I use The CD Kreator - it says "K3b did not find a suitable writer. You will only be able to creat an image." Although when i put a DVD in, it shows me the .VOB files...



    Any help in ANY of these areas would totally be killer!
    Thanks.

    It sounds like you are missing Cdrecord, to which K3B is only a GUI. Install cdrecord and see if it works.
