Unhappy Oh no!!!!!

Well first you need to find out if Phat Linux supports USB, if not, then it won't work, you'll need a nic card. There are few distro's that support that I know of, Redhat 6.2 and higher I believe and Mandrake 7. something, someone correct me if I am wrong.
Find that out, then you'll go from there.
