Good morning everyone,
 today I migrated from Win7 to Vector Linux6.0 (leaving these two on one Hdd), but on the other side I have completly no knowledge literally about Linux systems apart from instaling them and partitioning Hdd (two days ago installed Knoppix but was much worse than LV 6.0 - the last see my ethernet card at least Smiley so I removed Knoppix and have now LV).
 Just was able to an hour ago turn on my sound card and at least can watch a movie or listen music.
 But cannot figure out how to run an internet connection and start print server (my printer is Epson stylus sx100, LV do not see this printer so probably have to search for driver for this printer in internet or am I wrong?).
 My modem is connected  through Usb and printer too. But the most important is modem - when I am under Win7, I am using a password and username from my ISP to get connection (it's ADSL modem cable connection 1 Mb speed) and in Vector Linux don't see any of such programs or alternatives. I have configured modem with DNS and so on (I mean other functions like gateway and broadcast), but still cannot connect and don't know why. Shall I compile the kernel or what? Have ethernet card Realtek.
 Till now have no idea how to run internet under LC. Can anyone help, please?

where is now much snow outside Smiley

1. What model/brand is your modem? Pls post the output of your lspci, lsusb and lsmod (just run the 3 command in a console/terminal as root).

2. Did you enable the CUPS services for printing? You can enable/disable it using VASM. Check the service section, I believe.

BTW, welcome to VL. Smiley

By the way, I found a driver for my modem, it is Sagem Fast 800 E4 on producer site, it is Fast8x0_3-0-6.tgz but when I am tring to install it, getting message like below:  Sad

WARNING: Non-standard package name

| 1/1 | Installing Fast8x0_3-0-6.tgz                                          |
WARNING: Package has no description.

If it's going about printer, used or smth like this but driver to my printer is not listed among so I tried another drivers which I found similiar and the conclusion is that the printer is living (I mean start doing smth inside with test page, can hear sounds) but do not print anything. But I do not bother about it, coz most important issue now is how to run internet.
Thnx for reply,

Check the database for information about what printer driver to use.

The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.
