I have set up a "commodity hardware server" 6 core AMD 16G Ram no dvd drive , It has a wifi card that uses the ath9k driver. The wifi card works on the desktop edition without any issues.

I am trying to setup a slim server so that I can create some vms on top of it. However the installer fails complaining that there is no cdrom. Also the installer does not seem to recognize the wifi card. I am booting from a USB stick.

I think my other option is to use Xen cloud platform - but I am not sure if Xen will support my wifi card.

Is there a way I can skip the cdrom check and get the right wifi module loaded at boot so that the wifi card is detected ?
