    Trust are a card manufacturer but don't use their own chipsets, so it is hard to tell without knowing what chipset the card uses. Run the following commands and post back the results (in code brackets if you can, they will be quite long). Alternatively add them as an attachment to this thread.
    Code:
    dmesg
    lspci
    Remember too that DSLinux is quite small and purposely stripped out. It may not contain all of the necessary drivers, but the card may be supported in other distros.

    Maybe for dmesg you can redirect the output to a file, then attach it. As root or user (doesn't matter) run
    Code:
    dmesg > ~/dmesg.output
    You will then have the dmesg.output file in your home directory (or in root's home if run as root). You can then put this file on floppy/CDROM/USB stick and attach it to this thread.
