I'm installing Linux from Scratch, and so far I've gotten up to installing inetutils - http://lfs.osuosl.org/lfs/view/stable/chapter06/inetutils.html
- and I started wondering what I would have to do to get my wireless card working. I know when I tried installing Fedora Core (a few months ago) it didn't see my wireless card (an internal Atheros Wireless-g) so I downloaded a driver but had no idea what to do with the file I got. The problem was solved when I got SuSE 9.0 (now have 9.1) which recognized my wireless card immediately, but obviously I now have to figure out how to do that myself. How would I make sure it's recognized, and at what point would I do that? Would it need to be somewhere in the kernel configuration, or could I add it later?
It might be something I'll just find out through the course of installing everything, but I'm paranoid so I figure it's better to ask now.
