The forum sticky posts explicitly instruct you with what needs to be done to obtain assistance. Unless you follow those instructions, no one can assist you.

Without knowing which Linux distribution you're using, I cannot answer that question. However, the appropriate support group for your Linux distribution certainly could.

Follow the instructions here:
http://wiki.freespire.org/index.php/...eware_Drivers!
, although you'll need to use the legacy drivers (1.0-7185) instead of the version linked to from that wiki entry.
