In my opinion hardware is hardest to get just right under Linux.
hehe yeah. Though, when my friends ask can-it-be-done (?!?!) questions, I tell them: I don't have any problems, linux can do everything too.. In fact, I only have one problem; the market is a little too windows-minded.
I keep telling this, because for some reason a lot of people seam to believe nothing can be done with Linux.
Guess what; why else did I post this?
thanks for your response btw.
Nice to hear you got your USB device working too, I'm still working on my Linksys 128MB Keychain.
Thanks again. Oh, maybe could I help you a little further with these pointers:
I did notice some config entries in the kernel for usb-mass storage; but I'm not sure that's exactly what you're looking for. Maybe there is something usefull at http://www.linux-usb.org/
I've experienced that the tools 'usbtree' and 'lsusb' are very usefull to scan the USB bus, instead of endlessly finding out why your driver doesn't work.
