It looks like this may be the answer but I have to recompile knoppix and for me a newb to linux this seems like a daunting taskhttp://ipw2200.sourceforge.net/#links
Here's what I posted in the Knoppix forum.
I think I'm close but not sure:
Using Knoppix 5.0
Did not autodetect my card.
Network Card Config Tool states ETH0 and eth1 I'm not sure which is which:
Used ndiswrapper through Shell to install w29n51.inf (there is also an w39nf1.inf)
Installing from copied to directory /home/knoppix/Desktop/Drivers/Drivers/w29n51.inf
ndiswrapper -l reads Installed ndis drivers: w29n51 driver present, hardware present
Mod probe ndiswrapper after install reads: FATAL: Error inserting ndiswrapper (/lib/modules/2.6.17/misc/ndiwrapper.ko): Invalid argument
lspci -v reads for my card:
000:03:03.0 Network Controller: Intel Corporation Pro/Wireless 2915ABC MiniPCI Adapter (rev 05)
Subsystem: INtel Corporation: Unknown device 1020
Flags: medium debsel, IRQ 18
Memory at dcffd000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4k]
Capabilities: [dc] Power Management version 2
From here I have no clue what to do. I try Wavelan Configuration but it replies "No Wireless network card found"
