    Damn Small Linux not recognizing devices

    It's not recognizing the audio device, which uses the ADI 1981B Audio Driver... it's a HP Pavillion laptop zv5000.

    Also, it's not recognizing the ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 IGP and my ATHEROS WIFI.

    It says it sees an unknown ATI device, two unknown NEC devices, and an unknown Texas Instruments device.

    I'm not having any luck getting this to work.

    Network card works out of the box

    Damn Small Linux uses an older kernel (2.4) I believe. that probably doesn't have drivers for your hardware. If you want a small distribution, I would try puppy , featherlite or any other small distro with a 2.6 kernel. I believe that there is a wiki that lists most of them, but can't find the link that I saw on forum.Mini Linux - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia is the link I wanted. You could also try
