Ok, the situation:
1 total newb
1 Belkin Direct connect USB
1 of the comps is a Win XP with Direct Connect installed and working.
the other one, is a Mandrake Linux with the unit connected. i dont know if its installed or not... and i have *NO* idea how to setup this device, or get the network working.
One possible problem... the device creates an Emulated network card that the Direct connect uses.
