Hi again, Allen.

Have you been to this page?
http://www.houseofcraig.net/acx100_howto.php

Excerpt:
"... First, let's see if a driver is already installed, so type:
find /lib/modules/`uname -r` -name "*acx*", (those are not single-quotes
around uname -r, they are backtics and are the lower-case of the "~" key on
my keyboard). If there is no output from that command and you are simply
returned to your command prompt, then no driver is already installed and you
should proceed on to the next section. If you get something back... with
"acx_pci" in it, then it's possible that the already-installed driver will
work, and all you need to do now is install the firmware, to give that a try,
you can jump to this [link]section. Suse users: If you are going to use
Suse's built-in acx_pci module, then understand that it's compiled to look
for the firmware in /lib/firmware, not /usr/share/acx, so please bear this is
mind and modify your firmware location accordingly. Some other distros that
provide pre-compiled acx_pci modules compile them to look for the firmware
in /usr/lib/firmware. ..."

regards,

Carl
