So I reinstalled the 2.6 kernel I already had uninstalled, also without initrd.img. /vmlinuz points to the 3.2 kernel, but the system boots on 2.6 kernel. The live system works, but I have no wifi.

Hello Ben,

thanks for information. That's what I understood, but I waited for confirmation.

I shall perform a regular install to the flash disk.

I have another question: why are live systems always on fat32 filesystem and not ext2, ext3, ext4 filesystem?
