Yes, it is exactly what i thought, because i tested it with Slax, and it
worked very well.
Then, it could means what i have to recompile the netinstall kernel,
build the new personalized netinstall, and burn CD. if it were not
possible activating it at boot. Is it correct?
Is it possible installing from Slax, chrooting i mean?
