I've just installed Vector Light 7 (full install) and I cannot get the system to load the driver for my Cisco Linksys AE3000 usb wireless adapter.  I have installed many distributions and none of have shown any problems here.  This link shows how to do it.  All the compile etc commands seem to run fine but when I finally enter "modprobe -v rt3573sta" nothing happens.  In fact the most recent "Mint" loads the driver automatically.  I would appreciate any help.  Thanks!

Both gui and text installers hang at "Setting passwords"
Only the text installer was able to format and install /.  None touched /home!
Tried starting from CD:

Did you install RC3 or 3.1? If it's 3.1, it's about as close to a final release as we're going to get.

Tried installing rc3 on Dell GX280:  Both gui and text installers hang at "Setting passwords"
/ to sda1 was ext3 and home /sdb6 was ext4  they are supposed to be formatted to reiserfs -
using gparted in VL6, sda1 is now reiserfs (only after test install - but gparted says it can't read the contents)  Apparently gparted doesn't know ext4 as it is calling sdb6 ext3.  Tried looking at sdb6 in thunar - empty and 458.7 MB free.
switched to vl7.0, installed gparted 14.0, sda1 is reiserfs 18.63GiB 3.42 GiB used and sdb6 is still ext4.

Did I pick up from other posts that xfce is unusable? Ouch!
I have installed 7.1 B3 - didn't use it much but liked what I saw.  I did not like 7.0 so use 6.0 for my Linux operations.
I need 7.1 as it will replace W$ on my laptop.
One last question: If I install RC3 and start using it, will Final require a complete (except home) reinstall?

I didn't know that it was 64-bit (I am using the 32bit version of Vector Linux 7.0) and I assumed that I was loading the 32-bit version of that software (nothing about the file name in the repository that I saw indicated that it was a 64-bit version). And the 64-bit version is DEFINITELY named differently (I know, I checked it myself). So how do I get the 32-bit version to work?

What you describe, happens when you try to launch a 64-bit executable in a 32-bit environment or vice versa. Make sure you have a package for the appropriate architecture.

I finally managed to download and install it manually, but when I tried to run it from the "Games" menu nothing seemed to happen, so I tried running it in terminal mode with the following result:

doctor:$ usr/bin/fgfs --geometry=1024x768 --enable-game-mode
bash: usr/bin/fgfs: No such file or directory

DESPITE the fact that there IS a file in that sub-directory by that name. So what do you suggest I do to get it working (and yes, I have installed the dependencies the documentation for it says I need)?
