Alright, as if I was a retarded child, help me out with this install.
Gently, with lots of very small words; Linux renders me incapable of comprehending multisyllabic words and phrases.
I also apologize in advance if I should hand you a cockroach or something awful like that.
Here's my problem: I'm trying to install Slackware on my laptop. Now, I only have one computer (this laptop), so whenever I want to come back to Happy Helper Land, I have to boot back into Windows, but asofar, LILO has given me no problems. No, my problem is with Slack. It appears to be an "either/or" sort of deal.
Installation works fine. And the 2.4 kernel is beautiful. Except that I want 2.6. Make no mistake, 2.4 works just fine, save for the fact that it absolutely, positively hates my mouse and will not work with it.
And the 2.6 kernel (both test26 and huge26) installs only a lo interface.
But the mouse works.
Now, I have an SiS 900 ethernet adapter. So, my silly little soft-skulled self decided to try: modprobe sis900.
I get some "FATAL ERROR: /lib/modules/blahblahblah/somethingsomething.dep does not exist olololol".
I'm just not sure what to do. I tried upgrading my kernel from 2.4 to 2.6. I'm fairly sure that I messed it up, since that install didn't work anymore.
I just want to use Kismet. *cries*
Well, now that I've made my issue apparent, I'm gonna go drool. Thanks for reading!
