Okay, the ethernet card is a linksys 10b100 I don't know how generic those
are.  If they are generic, redhat knows nothing about them if man entries
are any indication.  The ensonic sound card is not supported, that's a pci
5880 and sndconfig doesn't support that one in 2.2.16-22.  I'm going to get
7.2 installed for security reasons not necessarily support of anymore
peripherals.  redhat is too flakey with hardware peripheral support for my
money.  Finally what should I be looking for in /etc.conf/modules?  It
appeared from /var/log/messages that the usb device was unknown and wouldn't
run and also appeared that ethernet stuff was loading successfully since
rhns-service came up successfully but no mention of linksys 10b100 appeared
in the messages.  Maybe that's the proof of failure, I don't know enough how
to read all of the messages in the ethernet card area to say definitely one
way or the other.
