just loaded a live image

just loaded a live image on an older laptop i've got... not sure which wireless card, probably an older intel g. wireless scans, prompts for password, but still won't connect.

almost exactly the same problem as before...

and get this: when i closed the lid to put it to sleep, i got a feedback loop between the laptop speakers and the built-in microphone.

i might try it on a desktop, but it doesn't seem ready for prime-time on a laptop. just my $.02 anyways.

don't want to slander OSOL. The wireless didn't work off the live CD, but works on my intel 3945 after installing. don't know why the discrepancy.

still have the feedback problem.

but I'm excited finally to have this OS working!
