PLEASE SUPPLY RELEVANT INFORMATION:
Operating System Version: Debian 3.0 kernel 2.2.20
Problem Application Name & Version: Need SCSI support
Problem Hardware Make & Model: not relevant
Error Messages:



Hi all:

Well, I'm used to helping here, but this time I need help.
I'm a Windows techie, trying to learn Linux. I'm a total newbie at Linux. I've installed Debian 3.0 stable, kernel 2.2.20 on an old machine, and it's running just fine. However, I'd like to be able to use a USB flash drive I have.

In order to use that drive, I understand Linux requires USB support and SCSI emulation. I know I should have installed another version of Debian instead, but I'd rather not reinstall everything unless absolutely necessary.  Is there some way to install SCSI support into Debian or will I have to get another version that supports SCSI and reinstall from scratch?



Thanks

You might want to upgrad to the 2.4 kernel... or even the 2.6 kernel.

I am running Debian on a 166 MHz machine with the 2.6 kernel and it runs just fine.

Tincan:

Thanks for the tip. I actually ended up doing a fresh install of Debian testing, using the 2.6 kernel. That gave me Gnome as aa default window manager, USB storage support, better nVidia driver, and a few other goodies. And it's more stable that the last version I had loaded.
