    Question 1

    I have a dual boot xp machine with a Netgear WG311 card which works great while under XP. When I boot into SUSE although the card is recognized, it does not function. How can I get this to function?

    Part 2

    I have a Nexdisk and a Sony flash drives 128MB and 256 MB and neither is recognized by SuSe when plugging into a USB. Once again they work fine in XP and also worked under Lycoris,Knoppix, (when I was trying out distro's before settling on purchasing SuSe) Is there any way to get SuSe to recognise these?

    If it is relevant, I have my SuSe on a separate hard drive of its own and allowed to to configure itself so its not on an XP drive. Everything else seems to work as advertised no problem. I would LOVE to be able to get on the net utilizing SuSe and perform some updates and downloads. Any solutions or suggestions ( adding an e card etc. ) would be greatly appreciated. If I have to buy something to make it work that is no problem. I am not looking for cheap, just want to make this work. Thank you in advance.

    SuSE has what I think is one of the best support database of the main Linux players.
    I found this set of guidlines,etc there.

    Here's another Howto that may help.
