    Default making kernel changes permanent for wireless card

    hi,

    been a linux user for bit now but i'm a noob as far as all this configuration stuff goes. i have been working on getting my linksys wpc11 v4 wireless card working with BT3 running from a 2G usb flash drive for awhile now.

    i've pretty much figured that what i need to do is compile new drivers for it. after messing around for a few days with outdated drivers, i found new ones here:
    rtl-wifi.sourceforge.net/wiki/Main_Page

    since BT uses a kernel older than 2.6.22 i need the mac80211 framework installed via a patch from intel:
    ntellinuxwireless.org/?p=mac80211&n=HOWTO-mac80211

    i've have successfully followed almost all the steps on that page, but the last one is:
    You will then need to reboot into the new kernel (vs. just loading the new 80211 modules)

    since i'm running a BT live from a flash drive, i will loose all my changes when i reboot. can i make the kernel changes permanent? if so, how?
    or am i headed on the wrong direction entirely to get this card working?

    thanks for any insight you can offer!
