    #1 video: have nvidia Linux Display Driver - x86 (file:; how do you unpack a .run file?
    #2 wireless: have intel linux driver (file: ipw2200_linux_1_2_0.tgz); unpacked under WinXP using 7-zip

    where can i find detailed, step-by-step, instructions on how to load these drivers into slitaz?

    also, to check my understanding, once these are successfully loaded, i will have to remaster in order to keep the changes, Yes|No ?
