BTW, there is a ton of help here on these forums, but I think folks are getting tired of helping people with their problems that have already been answered in other posts.

I understand that people are tired of answering these questions, as I see the same problems on other forums. However, generating a friendly forum attitude is, imho, more important. When I find newbs on other forums asking questions that have already been answered, I simply point them to the thread in question and welcome them to the forum. A little friendly encouragement goes a long way. They were once newbs too!

Help for racknrail
Greetings from Guelph. I am far from being a Linux expert (understatement) but I do know that Knoppix and its derivative Kanotix have no problems configuring a wire-based Ethernet card. I have done so several times. Wireless cards, however, seem to generally be a bit tricky on many distros, not just Knoppix. I think your best bet would be to search Google with the terms "wireless Ethernet configuration in Linux." If you have problems let me know and i will try to help search.
I have always found Linux forums excellent for friendly help and I wouldn't want to see you turned off of what I and many see as the greatest operating system!
P.S. I dual boot Kanotix and PCLinuxOS.
