Can I copy Knoppix Modules into Gentoo?


I've been having a frustrating time trying to get my video card
to work and my usb mouse to work. I followed the Gentoo Desktop Tutorial, but it was not working for me. I must have recompiled the getoo-sources kernel at least 20 times by now (hopefully I was doing it right).

Everything works fine whether I use the LiveCD or the Knoppix CD.

In LiveCD, here's what I have:

sis900
ohci1394
ieee1394
serial
isa-pnp
cloop
usb-storage
hid
uhci
ehci-hcd
usbcore

When I booted into Knoppix, and ran lsmod, here's what I get:

autofs4
af_packet
reiserfs
ext3
jbd
agpgart
i810_audio
ac97_codec
soundcore
sis 900
serial
hid
mousedev
input
usb-uhci
usbcore
apm
rtc

1. Can I somehow copy these modules into my Gentoo installation? I am also going to try to copy the XFreeConfig-4 file into my XFreeConfig file.

2. How do you know if you should use built-in components in the kernel or load them as modules?

Thanks for the help!
