Newbie source build question for wireless network
Newbie question so don't laugh.
I'm connecting an old laptop to my Mac Airport wireless network using a
Lucent Orinoco Gold PCMCIA card.
In order to do so, I need to compile PCMCIA source and the Orinoco cards
The Orinoco install instructions involve un-tarring the cards source
code into the pcmcia source code directory and the making the code.
So far, so good.
My problem is that I don't want to install debian onto a machine,
specifically for its fantastic package management abilities only to
break it by messing around with source code builds outside of the
Especially as making the pcmcia source might install into non-debian
standard locations on the file system.
Anybody have any advice?
