Yes, according to Knoppix latest release note, the Knoppix 3.8.1 support WLAN 21000

You can download the LiveCD version to try first, then install it on the hard disk.

For the newer version of Knoppix (3.4 or above), the command to install on HD should be
sudo knoppix-installer

Hi. If you look on this website: http://pont.net/linux/d600/

It seems someone was able to boot a Knoppix CD on a Dell D600 (with your wireless chipset) without having to recompile the kernel. The page mentions you should boot with "boot: knoppix screen=1400x1050" and install with "sudo /usr/local/bin/knx-hdinstall".

You can get Knoppix here:

Good luck.
