What is the best distro which has a 2.6x kernel
plus support for an Orinoco 16 bit 802.11b Classic
gold card? I am currently running Slackware 11.0
on a ThinkPad T30. When I boot the default
184.108.40.206 kernel my wireless card is recognized
so I can connect at the public library. But when
I boot the 220.127.116.11 kernel from /testing my
wireless card is recongized but I cannot connect.
Should I switch to a different distro? If so,
which one would you recommend? Would it help
to get a 32 bit Cardbus card instead?
