Hi,
I recently installed Suse linux 9.2 Professional. I only have 2 issues with it: no ethernet, and no sound. Now, this has happened to me before with all previous distros except for one -Knoppix. Knoppix so far has been the only distro that configured my system (ethernet and sound). I was wondering, if the freeware knoppix can do this, why cant the PAID suse professional? My main question is: Is there a way to take the drivers/whatever I need to make Suse work from Knoppix and move it to Suse? My friend said something about having to install the modules manually? This is no problem, but I really want suse to work, buecause 9.2 is one of the best OS's I've seen so far.

System specs (necessary info):
Gateway
ethernet: Intel Pro/100 VE ((integrated))
sound: SoundMAX integrated digital audio ((integrated))
OS:
dual-boot win xp pro, and suse 9.2

any help/suggestions would be wonderful, as i am a hapless noob to linux smile.gif

hmm - first step, see if Linux knows about your hardware. I assume Suse has some kind of hardware manager? (If not, then network confg should have something about a net card).

You could try disbaling them in the BIOS, and then rebooting, then enabling them one a time to see if they get detected then

I guess that is something

I think the drivers for your NIC can be found at http://support.intel.com/support/network/s...b/CS-006103.htm (Official intel ones)

Do you know the model number of your mobo? It might help to track the info down, what with it being integrated
