Using the flash drive in this manner is really more of a temporary thing. Without making a change to the hard drive on my work computer, it was the only way that I could find to create a consistently bootable environment that would store my changes while trying to get my network card to function. And that problem has been resolved!

I had tried bladehunter's wifi beta 2 dot pup without success (kernel panic?) a number of times and WAG wouldn't find the card since it's not a pcmcia card. In parallel to trying this, I have been working offline with tempestuous on getting the ipw2200 drivers to work. Yesterday we (really tempestuous) came up with the magic combination!! I'm working with him to refine the setup afterwhich, I believe, he intends to create a dot pup file from his installation. Tempestuous really deserves kudos for the effort he's put in to get this working even though he doesn't have this card!

Hank, perhaps just as important as another dotpup, would be to expand your post into a general discussion of the various things to consider when trying to get wireless working in Puppy. You've already made a good start. Smile
