I also didn't find usb0 when typing ifconfig. I was following these directions: http://www.openzaurus.org/web/index....d=29&Itemid=44
When it says that "...usb0 should definitely be there." keep reading!
This is a quote of the instructions:
First your Z:
Start 'Network' in your Settings dir. Click on the interface 'usbd0' and click configure.
Fill in the Following:
(X) Automatically bring up
( ) DHCP
Static Ip Configuration
IP Address 192.168.129.201
Subnet Mask 255.255.255.0
Leave the rest empty for now.
On your linux computer, as root, type the following:
ifconfig usb0 192.168.129.1 netmask 255.255.255.0 up
This should configure your USB network interface and bring it up. Now we'll try if we can reach the Z. On the console, we'll do this by pinging it's IP address:
bateau:~# ping -c 5 192.168.129.201

If you don't get the same message as above, you've probably screwed up in on of the steps above and go through them again.
I followed the above directions and was able to successfully ping my Z! woohoo!
My question now is: How do I use the usb cradle to allow my desktop to communicate with the Z? Do I need some kind of desktop software? If so, where could I find it?
Thank you very much.
