I have a Panasonic Toughbook laptop that I have to get working with Knoppix S-T-D. The latest release of Knoppix S-T-D uses the 2.4.x kernel, doesn't come with sky2 or sk98lin and doesn't support the Marvell Yukon 88E8053 integrated NIC. I have tried Knoppix 5.1 and it does work. It is using the 2.6.19.x kernel. I did some looking and found the sk98lin driver for my NIC. When I install that on S-T-D it will then recognize the card and I can configure it, but I still can't talk to anything on my network. I have verified that communication works flawlessly in Windows XP and in Knoppix 5.1 once I manually configure the card. I cannot tell what driver Knoppix is using for the card. I did a modprobe and it has both sky2 and sk98lin. Is there a way to check what driver a NIC is currently using? Or if someone knows what I can do to resolve this that will work too.
