Have you tried modprobe hid? This should be done as root.

Thank you, though I must not have understood the command because it did not do anything, but... I did find this with google..
jstest /dev/js0
it displayed my interact driver and when I pushed buttons or moved the sticks a bunch of jiberish appeared in the terminal so I guess it is working. Now that I know my joystick works, I will have to try some games in linux. Any suggestions? Wow, now all i have to do is get my modem working and I will be one very happy camper! has anyone succesfully installed slmodem? I cant get it to work I've been trying for 4 days now
