I know that to save space you are leaving out many modules for hardware support, but all (ALL) my PCMCIA cards for LAN (both wired and wireless) are not supported. I think maybe you could try the following:

Include all known modules for ethernet hardware at the expense of other modules (say high end video cause 3D is sketchy at best) and then set up a "pupMod" get application to get the missing modules (i.e. video) (probably easier said than done Wink )

In this manner, everyone would be able to get on the internet w/o using another computer to search for modules and then dragging those modules across with a usb stick (or heaven forbid a floppy). It would also be a huge feather in the cap of the PuP, cause you would instantly have the best hardware recognition in the biz.

Good luck and thanks for the great work.

Love the pup.
