I've been to that site already. Like every where else it doesn't cover SUSE 9.1...and 9.1 is what I need to have installed for a class I am taking

well...I am thinking this is a lost cause. I've downloaded the driver and I have the gcc compiler installed but it won't let me compile the driver.

Could have some thing to do with all the other hardware that doesn't have drivers installed. Appearently you have to have at least a ten year old machine to install SUSE 9.1.
