Just read which ones are supported in which version of the driver and find yours.

    shortly after I posted, I found lots of pages describing the process. It did mention sax2 to get _all_ the features working. Im using legacy drivers.

    BTW, I have an old...old copy of Suse. It is version 6.2 and the USA store package has 6 cd's or dvd's in it. Is it worth anything on Ebay?

    Thanks for the info. I don't have it installed on anything right now, but I still have the installer on a cd, so maybe I'll give it another try sometime. I may dual boot it on my desktop after I finish doing some other stuff on it.

    Since some of you have been asking about installing and seemed worried about it, I've decided to dig up the tutorials I wrote for doing that very thing.

    I haven't written one in some time now, and the installers HAVE changed since then. However, the installation is still very much the same for most of these distros.

    I know OpenSUSE 11 is basically a live CD, and to start that install you'd just double click on the Icon saying Install, and it starts it up. For the most part you won't have any issues doing it.

    Windows is actually harder to install than Linux, and Linux actually has a better GUI for the installers unless it's Debian or Slackware in which case it's text based like most of the Windows install is.

    Here you go:

    Once you have SUSE installed, this is how you could set up an FTP server on it which would first, give you a way of doing back ups to a central location, and second, teach you how it works:

    Nice, gore. I didn't realize you had written that many.

    So another point for linux. I was dreading installing a printer on my wife's laptop (running Ubuntu 8.10) so I looked around for drivers for this particular printer before I even started. Turns out that was unnecessary, because five seconds after I plugged it in and turned it on, the laptop recognized the printer! Everything works man...printing, scanning, and of course copying. I was slightly blown away.

    I've written way more than that. I just posted the ones I found first heh. I've written a crap load of those things, but some were really old and wouldn't help anyone right now unless they had an old OLD version they wanted to install, so I skipped those, and I also skipped a few that were re-writes or just "updated" versions that included new stuff if one of the installations had changed or something.

    Yea, I can grab more and put them in there. The other stuff I did was either installation based or using it once it was installed.

    I also did a thing for Vi. It was a short one on basic usage for people who were trying to figure out why it just beeps at them when they type.
