Have you even installed the drivers yet ?
Im not sure what format teh drivers are in but I dont think it's
as easy as downloading the driver's & pointing a program to it.
Can you tell me what format the drivers are in ie tar, rpm, tar.gz
& I will tell you how to install the drivers, or try

no idea about your second problem though, try this http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...wning+too+fast
