Ok, well, I am up and running, I was able to make a bootable USB drive using Unetbootin, however, I might still re download the ISO. When the Unetbootin menu loaded the first time, there were some odd characters in there and the text was slightly scrambled on a few lines, but I chose default and it loaded PCLOS 2010. So far I like it, even running from the flash drive, it seems rather quick and responsive.
It did detect my Sprint broadband card, however, the path wasn't correct.
I was please to see 2010 still had KPPP, because I know how to manually configure my card using KPPP.
I am using a broadband card on a desktop using a PCI to PCMCIA adapter, it works well as long as I can set the path to dev/tty/ACM0.
Ok, just wanted to say it was working, im back to playing with it a little bit. Im like a kid in a candy store. LOL
