Wifi in penaOS

A few days ago i got emails from Denny Knafler about the wifi support in penaOS. Well, penaOS is basically an Ubuntu Hardy Heron, and it suport many wireles chipset. but for atheros, sometimes you need to instal the hardy bacport modules. that's what i did, and i'm going to put it in th next release of penaOS , probably 0.8.1. The penaOS 0.9 is not ready yet.
if you want to install it yourself, here's the steps:

1. Disable the atheros driver in system-administration-hardware drivers .. disable the HAL and Driver (both of them)

2. Instal the backport modules, in terminal, type :

sudo apt-get install linux-backports-modules-hardy -y

then probably you have to restart...

good luck guys...
