    thanks for the help, i would use it but when i plug in the card, the computer locks up (in bt3) nothing works not even the power button i have to take the battery out just to get back on track- possibly a bad burn or incomplete iso? where in the files can i check to see if everything is there/ok before inserting the card?

    This sounds like a driver / kernel issue try updating the drivers, and if you still getting problems post back.

    I've gotten this far and I pm'ed Dr GrEen, not knowing that a repost moves it up in the list, so my apologies for that sir, I hope you are not PO'ed
    Used the link he gave me and d-loaded the driver and did this:
    t ~ # tar -xvzf orinoco-0.15.tar.gz
    orinoco-0.15/
    orinoco-0.15/airport.c
    orinoco-0.15/hermes.c
    orinoco-0.15/hermes.h
    orinoco-0.15/hermes_rid.h
    orinoco-0.15/orinoco.c
    orinoco-0.15/orinoco.h
    orinoco-0.15/orinoco_cs.c
    orinoco-0.15/orinoco_nortel.c
    orinoco-0.15/orinoco_pci.c
    orinoco-0.15/orinoco_pci.h
    orinoco-0.15/orinoco_plx.c
    orinoco-0.15/orinoco_tmd.c
    orinoco-0.15/spectrum_cs.c
    orinoco-0.15/Kbuild
    orinoco-0.15/Makefile
    orinoco-0.15/NEWS
    orinoco-0.15/README.orinoco
    orinoco-0.15/compat.h
    orinoco-0.15/net/
    orinoco-0.15/net/ieee80211.h
    But then...
    bt ~ # cd orinoco-0.15
    bt orinoco-0.15 # make
    Makefile:15: *** Kernel in /usr/src/linux-2.6.21.5 is not configured. Stop
    Am I in the wrong directory? How do I configure ze kernel?
    I've been googling and searching the forum for hours and the info is good but incomplete( I might be incompetent) some how-to's tell me to use make config but when I do...
    bt ~ # make menuconfig
    make: *** No rule to make target `menuconfig'. Stop.
    bt ~ # make
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
    Not finding any solid answers for this- even in the readme file, the man page, or the help.txt on the net-- I'm probably just not understanding the meaning of what these files are trying to tell me-- can anyone elaborate for me?
    Many thanks
    BTW< I'm having trouble understanding some of the info in this link: Originally Posted by Dr_GrEeN View Post

    bt src # make patch-2.6.25.5
    make: Nothing to be done for `patch-2.6.25.5'
    make config gets me this...
    bt src # make config patch-2.6.25.5
    make: *** No rule to make target `config'. Stop.
    I'm not sure what to do at this point-- any pointers would be greatly appreciated!!

    Right now I'm trying to configure my kernel cause when I try to run
    make Makefile for the card driver, i get this:
    bt orinoco-0.15 # cd Makefile
    -bash: cd: Makefile: Not a directory
    bt orinoco-0.15 # make Makefile
    Makefile:15: *** Kernel in /usr/src/linux-2.6.21.5 is not configured. Stop.
    Trying to follow a few how-to's and threads but nothing definitive, Doc GrEen, said look at the driver so as I try to update it this comes up and now its time to learn how to configure the general officer
    Any Observations?
    Got to this point and now confused cause make xconfig got me this:
    bt ~ # uname -r
    2.6.21.5
    bt ~ # zcat /proc/config.gz > 2.6.21.5-smp.config
    bt ~ # make xconfig
    make: *** No rule to make target `xconfig'. Stop.
    bt ~ #
    Also, if you've never built a kernel and want to use the kernel you're running
    now as a starting point, that is a good place to start. Issue:
    zcat /proc/config.gz > 2.6.24.5-smp.config
    which will create the file 2.6.24.5-smp.config from your running kernel. You
    can change the name - I used the one with Slack-12.1 as an example. Either cat
    it to ./linux-2.6.25.4/ as .config to begin with, or cp it there. Then run
    "make xconfig" and change options to suit your computer.
    This is where I got the idea from BTW

    You have said that your card worked with BT2 and now it doesn't work in BT3
    because of a error in the kernal... I am guessing but is sounds like the error is
    really in your upgrading of the BT3... Like I am saying, I am totally guessing.

    But, I had to tell you that as I am going to ask you some questions:

    Which will help me,,,, Help you...

    So this is what we know:

    BT2 your card worked,,,,

    YOU did something and then your card didn't work.
    I am guessing that you installed BT3 on your hard drive... or usb flash drive.

    Question One: Please give me the link to the install that you did?

    As I would bet that the answer that you are looking for is is in the last place that
    you would look,,, and that is because the answer might be in the place where you
    started this path and not at the point where you find yourself crashing.

    Do you have a Windows (R) or VMware install?

    Lets start here.

    Reason, that I have never heard of anyone that had to reconfigure a kernel to
    install a card... it seems that your install might not have been complete.

    I only have 14 posts so I don't know enough to help you, but maybe
    I can get you to look back and discover where the issues are?

    I would just backup a copy your current BT3 partition and then I would
    try to reinstall BT3 with a fresh slate. Only because I don't know anything.

    Cool, first off,
    Dual booting XP and BT3 installed from live cd, full install
    With the live cd, things got ugly real quick, with the hd install, it starts to boot, then when the long string of messages at the beginning are happening, with the gold card in, something is added to the message, and it just stalls. Give me about 10 minutes to reboot with g- card in and write down the message difference.
    Followed the install guide from Off-sec and tutorial from Killnine

    Ok here is what it says
    Code: 03 00 70 09 25 ff ff 00 00 66 89 02 c3 89 d0 25 00 00 ff ff 3d 00 00 etc. etc.. for about 60 more characters,
    then we have:
    udev-event[2603]:run_program: '/sbin/modprobe' abnormal exit'
    I have to hit enter cause my lilo.conf file is read-write (changing that shortly)
    and while its trying to load the touchpad it just stops and I can hit the spacebar or whatever and nothing until I press the power button and reboot with my dlink card installed.
    Vas ist los?

    Negative.
    The first tutorial I found was the one from a member named Killnine
    I printed out the pdf from Off-sec but in the middle of following it my partition magic performed some voodoo and made my windows go away-- luckily I had easus hard disk copy-2.0 and just recopied my windows partition back from a 500 gig hd and started over-- took me 3 days but now I can do it with my eyes half shut.
    Doc GrEen said to check my drivers and sent me to a link that is in this thread and there I found a new one, tried to get it going and here I am trying to configure my kernel-- so... tired... must.. configure... kernel.......

    Ok, Get some sleep, go to windows, make DVD's QTparted, BT3, Delete the corrupted BT3 partition(s) on your hard drive, Print your instructions, reboot with the BT3 check that the DVD isn't corrupt, Get some sleep,,, wake up with a BIG Coffee and start your install.

    Don't guess, if you guess 99 percent of the time you will be wrong.

    Good Luck,
