One more tip, if you are actively engaging in a topic, it might be
better to switch off the digest mode.  Your thread is pretty fragmented
which makes it harder to follow.  I may be asking questions that you
answered already.

The video makes sense if you have an nVidia or ATI video card.  THe
wireless makes sense if you were using ndiswrapper.  The LAN does not
really make sense.

It would be a good idea to post the output if lspci.  You do not need
any flags to get me the  information I am looking for.

The kernels have the same modules.  Where things get complicated is with
binary only (aka proprietary) drivers and driver hacks (ndiswrapper is a
good example of a dirty hack).  These will probably not be handled
automatically.  Chances are you had to do something to get them to work
in the first place. You may have had to install the restricted drivers
package (or you may have been prompted).

This makes choosing hardware more important than ever, IMO.

First things first, what hardware have you got?  Give us the output from
lspci please.
