    hi ppl, I have recently download knoppix and use it as a boot disc for places where I dont have linux installed. I need some help here though. I have an efficient networks speedStream 5200 dsl modem with a usb connection to my computer. How can I set this up in knoppix? I tried the dsl setup utility but it says "no network card detected" and How do i get my hp deskjet 648c configured? I tried the printer config but don't know how to get it running (how do I load drivers from my hd because This is a boot cd) thx ppl

    You will have to mount the hd, then load them with /sbin/modprobe (they are modules, right?)

    first i need to find the drivers for the speedstream 5200 usb modem from efficcient networkds, then load the drivers via a mount (knoppix automatically mounts your windows hdd so you can browse and modify files, B)

    btw, I knew she was joking

    @bulio --The fact that your trying to use a Live CD at school or at work is even worse.

    You can&#39;t save anything with a live cd unless you have a usb key or some other portable storage device which I doubt any admin would allow on their network.

    Try Driverguide for your Linux drivers you want or go to the manufacture&#39;s website.

    @ LSA --yeah you think their cools. Let me guess..................you never really installed Linux before have you? You been using a Live cd all this time I&#39;ll bet. :-"

    And IMO, Windows can do a lot more than what most people would actually use a Live cd for anyway............besides firewalling. [/B]

    Someone here has the same problem

    http://www.knoppix.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=9033

    -------------------

    Google Groups Search: speedstream 5200 linux

    You can probably find some stuff in there.

    Have you found the drivers yet?

    -------------------

    @shn - Ok ok ok...I confess....
