Hi Everyone!

I Have a compac presario 900 and I'm trying to install Linux on it. But, somehow, it seems to have problems while detecting usb, because, it always sends errors when it reaches the fase of usb detection on the boot sequance.
I have lots of different distributions, but the only one that works so far is knoppix 3.3, and, for it to work, i have to write "knoppix nousb" on the boot command line.
What I would like to know is if it is possible to configure the usb devices after it is working.
Thank you in advance.

Usb ports are usually easily recognised by linux....

DO you have any device connected to the USB ports

and what distro you was trying to install.

Hi there!!
Thanks for your interest.
I have managed to install Mandrake Linux 9.2 but the USB still doesn't work. I normally have an optical mouse pluged, but linux detects no device that I plug in (flash drives, printers, ADSL modem, etc.)
If I go to the mandrake control centre and try to test an optical USB mouse(at the mouse configuration), the system just hangs, but the lights on the mouse actually turn on. This means that linux detects that there is something pluged in, but it seems to be unable to work with it.
This is something really unconfortable, as you may guess, because most recent devices work with USB.
If you could help me, I would be really thankfull.
