Hi

I am a complete newbie at Linux and have just installed RedHat9.
I have a wireless USB stick D-Link DWL-122 that I am trying to install without any success.

After plugging the stick in the message logs read ..

:USB device 3 (vend/prod 0x2001/0x3700)is not claimed by any active driver.
:no modules for USB product 2001/3700/132

I think I am right in saying that need to install the drivers for this device.

My questions are these ...
1. The drivers available appear to be only for windows products, however I have read that this should not be a problem is this likely to be correct?
2. How would I go about installing drivers, supposing I downloaded them, got them onto a memory stick and mounted that memory stick onto my linux laptop,
do I just copy them into a specific directory and they just work, or is there some configuration I need to do?

Any help would be great as I really have no idea what I am doing!!

Thanks for the quick reply michaelk.

Thats really helpful, I'll give that a go tomorrow.

I will also look into changing over to another version of Linux. Redhat 9 was rather forced on me as I need to test some application software that has been written for RH9.

Thanks for the help! - I suspect I will be back for something else soon!!
