I've been trying various Linux distributions for over ten years. I have checked the forums when I run into a problem. Sometimes I even find an answer to my problem. But Linux nerds excel in tech speak. I've rarely been able to understand a Man page because they are written for technical people and not for the casual user who's just trying to get his sound card to work. I've tried six different live distributions on my Acer laptop and not one of these distributions was able to configure WiFi to my Netgear router. And none of the six distribution's help pages were able to explain how I could configure the link. Actually, Netgear even has Linux drivers that I could use if I want to go ahead and install the software. But I was just interested in doing a test drive to see what feature I like on the different distributions. Knoppix does allow the user to store a profile on the Windows hard drive. So I may try doing that so that I can use the CD Rom reader to install the Netgear drivers. Oh well...
