ditto on firewire (non-existent);
/* On the firewire question, if you have a newer motherboard, i.e. 4
years or so or newer, the lan port is also a firewire port.
check you bios and/or win32 install if you have one on it.*/

Knoppix indeed recognized and initialized my shiny new Sandisk 8-in-1 and
Canon A-75! What's this? uname -r shows a 2.4 kernel- hmmm,
musta entered boot params incorrectly- reboot to 2.6 kernel- same probs.
as in Sarge. Mandrake Move is only live cd I tried with 2.6 kernel that
actually worked, and it worked perfectly (re usb devices; actually, it's
pretty slick overall, and as an (ex) Drakie, I got a bit misty). However,
unable to translate Mandrake to Debian, so a reversion to a 2.4 kernel was
in order (now experiencing a more joyful state of mind). BTW, I'm using
ga-7ixe, so will be keenly watching thread- good luck to us both!!
