Thank you very much for your answer.
About the pegasus driver, unfortunately the 2.6.23 is not in the autobuild anymore so, if it not too much trouble for you I'd be happy if you can compile it for me.
As soon as I have some spare time from work I will try to setup the compilation environment and I'll be happy to give my contribution and my feedback to the team.

without bt is SL6000L.

Angstrom 2007.12 r8 is the last bootable release.

true. the built-in wifi with wlan-ng driver only does WEP. You need a CF
or usb wifi device for WPA. And as reported by others, some modules need
to be built into the recent 2.6.23 (not sure) and 2.6.24 kernel to be
able to decipher WPA encryption.

I can build a 2.6.23 kernel module for you, or it may still be in the

2.6.24 tosa kernel is not bootable for me as well. But Dmitriy (who is
hacking the Tosa kernel) said it's working for him. Indeed very
puzzling. Currently I'm using a 2.6.23 kernel for testing, but I'd love
to see the various improvements Dmitriy did with the 2.6.24 kernel.
