Firmware question about AverTV DVB-T USB 2.0 dvb receiver

Hello, looking for a way to get the nice blue light to turn on on the front of my dvb box. I'm using zenwalk 2.2 (kernel

I tried to follow the advice on (some website who's url I can't post till I've posted 4 more times) but I don't know where to put the firmware file for my dvb box. I've tried putting it in etc/hotplug/usb/ and /lib/firmware but that didn't work. In suse it went in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware but zenwalk seems to be set up differently. For reference, the firmware file is called dvb-usb-avertv-a800-02.fw

this is the output of /sbin/lsusb

Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 002: ID 046d:c504 Logitech, Inc. Cordless Mouse+Keyboard ReceiverBus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
this is the output of dmesg. I couldn't find the part that refers to my dvb box so I've included all of it (sorry)
