right now, if i pop in my knoppix 4.0 live cd, this son of a gun finds everything on my winxp laptop....wireless card, boom, up and running on the net, hard drive, boom, no problem, usb drive, again, bada-bing, up and running...

but, my question, i have a spare pc, if i take that one and clear the hd and put a regular partition on there (non ntfs) and install knoppix, plug in my mn 520 usb wireless network adaptor, will knoppix find it then?

i can understand if finding it right now, because my win xp has the ms driver installed, and that is done via a standard windows installer program, but with a hd with just the partition for the linux, how will knoppix know what i have as a wireless network adaptor? or any adaptor that i plug into it, or am i way off base here?
