    can't see anything. also, the usb flash has a LED that lits up when connected properly and blinks when in use. the LED does not even light up. I can continue working on this tomorrow when I get the floppy drive at the office.

    I think i got something going now. the last command INSMOD VELOCITYGET.KO did not run, i get this error: File does not exist. At the very end of the MAKE INSTALL output i see:

    ***************
    Build options:
    VERSION: 2.4.26
    SMP Disabled
    ***************
    mkdir -p /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net
    install -m 644 -o root velocityget.o /lib/modules/2.4.26/kernel/drivers/net
    /sbin/depmod 0a || true


    IFCONFIG displays:
    eth0 - with a valid IP address from the router.
    lo - this has the same value as before Local Loopback

    I ran from the terminal:
    IFCONFIG ETH0 DOWN
    IFCONFIG ETH0 UP

    No problem so far, but when i run Konqueror from KDE, i still cannot connect. Running PING www.yahoo.com from the terminal returns unkown host www.yahoo.com

    What do you think should I do next?

    The kernel-source package contains the source code for your kernel; the reason I think you need it installed in order to install this driver is that you are basically compiling a kernel module, which usually requires the kernel's source code to compile against. If it's already installed (and it may be), there would be a directory full of stuff in /usr/linux/src.

    The kernel source package should be on your Slackware CD. If it isn't, you can go to linuxpackages.net and grab the right one. Be sure to grab the kernel source that matches your kernel version. You can check your kernel version by using the
    Code:
    uname -r
    command

    What does your /etc/resolv.conf file look like?
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Can you ping ip addresses from the linux machine? If you can ping IP addresses but not DNS names, then putting different nameservers in /etc/resolv.conf would probably fix it (4.2.2.1 and 4.2.2.2 are nameservers that I know work).

    I am posting this reply using my linux pc. thank you very much for the help.

    is there an award system in this forum? my vfp programming forum has one which allows us to at least show our appreciation.

    There was an award system a while back, but it seems to have been taken offline.

    Just happy to help
