    Unhappy TinyXp Beast Ed. NO Internet

    Hello,

    I installed tinyxp beast edition on my laptop and everything seems to be fine except I can't get on the Internet either by LAN or wireless. Its seems as though my hardware is not being recognized, so it could be that I don't have the drivers for setting up a network. Can someone please tell me how I can install these drivers?

    Thanks in advance


    ps- LAN and wireless work fine on Ubuntu Linux and Vista

    is your lan card internal or external, if internal you will have problems if external you just need to install the drivers supplied with the lan card.

    Problem with pre-packaged stripped-out versions of a Windoze OS: There is functionality missing that you might just need or want!

    Install a full version of XP and strip it out yourself. You'll be a lot happier with the result.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?

    From the mouth of the "developer":

    OK since people insist on using this OS, heres some points you must take into consideration:

    1 - "TinyXP Beast Edition" was released on 6th June 2006. This means it is now more than 18 months old.

    2 - Because this OS is 18+ months old - I urge everyone not to download it. If you have already downloaded it - don't use it.

    3 - Stop asking me and other members here questions about "TinyXP Beast Edition". Personally, I refuse to support this OS or answer any questions about any problems, because 18 months ago when this OS was made, I didn't know half of what I know now regarding better tweaks, better silent installers, better selection of components to remove and so on. Don't ask me about why you can't use a printer in Beast Edition! Don't ask me why you cannot use a Webcam in Beast Edition. Would you complain to Ford because your 1963 Mustang broke down? STOP USING THIS OS AND GET OVER THE FACT THAT ITS INFERIOR TO ALL THE "TinyXP" RELEASES THAT HAVE PRECEDED IT.

    4 - Maybe the most important thing to note is this - TinyXP Beast Edition is called the Beast Edition because it was released on 06.06.06. Get it? Number of the beast and all that stuff? 6th June 2006 = 6.6.6 and this is THE ONLY reason this OS was released. IT IS, IN EVERY CONCEIVABLE PERCEPTION YOU COULD MAKE, A NOVELTY OS. Its not supposed to be taken seriously.

    5 - This OS, apart from the above 4 points, is only for surfing the internet and playing games. Did I know what I was doing when i removed Webcam support? Yep. Did I know what I was doing when i removed printer support? Yep. I knew these things wouldn't be usable in this OS but it was made to be as small as possible with the knowledge I had at that time - it was never intended to support anything other than to surf the net and play games, that's it.

    If this is such an old and unsupported edition, why is it still available for download?

    Why can you still download DOOM? iD/Activision doesn't support it anymore and is far older than TinyXP Beastiality Ed.

    Face it: Once something is available on the 'net, it will pretty much always be available on the 'net.

    You can still get DOS, doesn't mean you should.
