Thanks so much, you are correct.
As I am not willing to install a whole linux on my pc (maybe in the near
future). I used the installer method, with rename the kernal and filesystem
name to lenny. Now, able to boot whiite on my Wii :)
However, just wonder if this lenny debian already enable the wifi?
In "Configuring a wireless network
*You need the following userland packages in Debian to configure and operate
the Nintendo Wii WLAN card: *
- * wireless-tools *
- * wpasupplicant (if you use WPA/WPA2 security) *
- * udev (needed to service firmware image requests from the driver) *
*You can issue the following commands as root from your Nintendo Wii to
install those packages: *
*whiite:~# apt-get update
whiite:~# apt-get install udev wireless-tools wpasupplicant*
But as I didn't get wifi work, how could I use "apt-get update".
I know there should be a way to download on PC and copy on to Wii,
then enable my wifi. It seems that I need to gain some Debian
