sorry if i am asking too many questions ... i just want to get this 
system up and running before tomorrow.

I decided to reinstall Ubuntu Studio, I had a bit of a mess with jack 
and some apps in my prev system. Better to have a fresh one.

Now with the generic kernel I get all general stuff working fine, only 
jack with freebob is not stable. Then with the RT kernel jack runs fine 
so far but I dont get wifi connection. My card is not displayed by lspci.

Is this normal? For me it is good and bad, good because it was causing 
conflicts with freebob and bad because sometimes i need network when 
working with sound. I guess the module that deals with my wifi card is 
not loaded, maybe I should compare a lsmod with both kernels? then i 
guess i would need to load the module with the RT kernel and see if it 

Otherwise all seems to work fine. BTW, is there is a mode to switch 
kernels without rebooting?
