well, I got zeroshell to boot from a hard drive following the instructions on how to make a writeable copy.
I was able to do it without using a ramdrive. I had enough free space to extract apt.bin; however, on subsequent reboot, it wouldn’t boot, got a message about a bunch of files not found in /etc.
Maybe my hd is corrupt. will try again with an ssd flash card I have.
To make matters worse, my profile got corrupt.
So in theory, if I get it up and running I should be able to get those linux drivers (cross fingers), and then compile the compat wireless drivers.
