Hello everyone !

I want to install a light Fedora desktop with openbox as my window manager. My computer is a HP 2133 mini-note. This computer is known to have some issues with the wifi card because only the proprietary driver works.

This is a site that explains how to repair b43-fwcutter : http://hp2133.umsw.de/
And this is the site of the proprietary driver : http://www.broadcom.com/support/802.11/linux_sta.php

I have a usb 512 Mb usb stick. I want to make my own live CD based on Fedora 12 with openbox as my window manager, slim as my DM and finally with the wifi proprietary driver. But I don't exactly know how to do that. Can anyone explain to me how to do that?

Thanks for your help !

(moved all over the place, fixed title & settled on Spins & Remixes. Probably will end up somewhere else eventually, but I'm bushed right now)

If you plan to run off the usb stick, then revisor with a custom kickstart file is the way to go. If you had a 1GB USB stick, I'd suggest the using the LXDE spin iso with a persistent overlay
