Device drivers are added to the kernel. Device drivers are called modules since they are modules of the kernel.

That Trust Cam should already be installed and recognized by the kernel.

You will need software (a program) to use the camera. One of the programs to use the webcam would be Cheese.

As for the modem you have not supplied enough information.  You claim it to be a Ralink wireless modem. Without
exact information (Name, Make, model and version number) it is impossible to give anything further that would be
helpfull.

Open a terminal su to root
Then type:

lsusb

to get the output to a file you can use this  command

lsusb > lsusb

Now look for your file called lsusb. It will now be a text file of the output
which you can post here.

Do same as above for lsmod and put into a text file so that you
can copy and paste that output here.
