ok..here it is I have a Sagem F@st 800 ADSL modem that came with my broadband package, and I'd like to get it working with knoppix, as drivers for it are not included. Now, I've downloaded Linux drivers for it from the Sagem website, but now I'm completely confused - How do I load the drivers into the kernel? I'm a complete n00b at Linux in general, a little help please confusedx.gif

Is Knoppix installed, or running "Live" off the CD?

It would be a little difficult to get USB devices to work on a Live CD, if they do not work to begin with.

It may not be able to find the USB port its connected to or it does not have a driver for a USB modem....... it be a lot esaier to install then config your kernel to find it and use it..

No, it can find the device - It just doesnt have drivers for it - it is listed as "Unknown device"

You can't install stuff using a Live CD in most cases. Install Knoppix to your hard drive with the full install version and it should work - Live CDs are usually just for demonstrating what the OS is like, and don't allow you to do anything major.

oh well, it was worth a shot. thanks for the input everyone. @ Guardian-Archangel, Knoppix is a Debian-based variant of Linux winkx.gifsmilie.gif
