Ah. Well that would certainly explain why I can "see" the card but not
use it. I have a spare Netgear PCI 802.11b MA311 that I'll try and use
then. It has a Prisim II (2.5) chipset.
Know if there is anyway to have m0n0wall write it's config file to a USB
thumb drive instead of a floppy? Floppy drives are getting pretty
scarce these days. And USB thumb drives are dirt cheap. I just bought
a 64MB one for $0 after rebate. Can't beat free. (Technically it cost
me about $1 for tax and a stamp to send in for the rebate.)
I understand that the config file is only a few bytes and that it would
be a waste of a thumb drive. But they are so cheap I don't really care.
(And I don't believe there is any reason why I couldn't still use the
thumb drive anyway is there? Understanding that the data on the thumb
drive could potentially be stolen or erased if there were ever an
exploit in m0n0wall.)
I ask because I would like to experiment with m0n0wall on this computer
and/or my laptop. And neither of them have a floppy drive. When I boot
the m0n0wall CD from this computer, it hangs at some point when the
kernel is probing for hardware. Presumably because it can't find the
