Hi,

Where can I find out/learn how to compile? I have source code for the driver for a compact flash SparkLan wifi card? I am looking for simple instructions as I am new at Linux and the SL-5500.

Alternately, is there a wifi compact flash card that supports WPA on the SL-5500 thats easy to install?

Thanks,
Rich

Not trying to step on people's toes but ...

I had hoped someone could point me to a comprehensive 'how to' URL for people who know nothing about Linux but have a little computer know how. Or, must I spend unrealistic time learning developer skills in order to get the linux source code compiled that came with my compact disk wifi card so I can use it with a 5500? Or, did I stumble into the wrong forum--for which I apologize.

I appreciate the work developers do but I am just an end user trying to get my wifi adapter with WPA working. I just don't want to make it my life's work.

I am hoping that it is not a case of 'it took me this long and I am expect others to spend as much time to learn it as I did'.
