My cute little pink netbook has apparently contracted something terrible from one of those foreign hooker websites. I would like to use the Kaspersky Rescue CD to attempt to save it instead of wiping it clean. I've successfully converted the live CD to a bootable USB and I've booted into the super awesome fun anti-malware environment.
The problem that I am having is that Kaspersky doesn't want to load any drivers for my networking devices. A
lspci shows me that it recognizes the devices as an
Ethernet controller: Atheros Communications Inc. AR242x 802.11abg Wireless PCI Express Adapater (rev 01)
Ethernet Controller: Attansic Technology Corp. Device 1062 (rev c0)
And that all seems pretty legit, but I don't know what to
modprobe to get these bad boys to start working so I can download the latest updates.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to finding the right drivers for these guys and where to put them on the ISO before I "reburn" the bootable USB? Linux and me aren't that close on the playground for him to just tell me outright. Help me Obi-Wan Kenobi, you're my only hope!
I can provide the
uname and any other useful information about the Rescue environment or whatever else you need, but I'm not sure what's required here.
UPDATE: I'm not looking for a *nix distro to reformat with and I'm not looking to just reload Windows. This is more of an academic interest than anything, as it seems useful to know how to load extra drivers on my Kaspersky Rescue Disk (preferred), or at least the latest updates so I don't need the network drivers (back-up plan).
CLARIFICATION: I have no problems compiling a new kernel and attempting to use it instead of the stock Kaspersky one, I'm just looking for what drivers I need to compile into my new one to get these bad boys up and running. I'm fairly confident that drivers for these devices exist in Linux as I've installed Ubuntu on a netboot very similar to this one previously (well, that one was baby-blue, not pretty-pink).
