2.2.18 & USB Does It or Doesn't It

Does it support USB?

I've got a USB Zip250 configured as:
        /dev/sda4       /mnt/zip        vfat    noauto,user,rw  0 0

I do:

        Using /lib/modules/2.2.18/scsi/ide-scsi.o


        mount: the kernel does not recognize /dev/sda4 as a block device
       (maybe `insmod driver'?)

If 2.2.18 supports USB then, I'm probably something minor that is not
allowing 2.2.18 to recognise the device correctly.

Anyone have suggestion as to how to fix this problem?

Yes it does.

OK, the problem is likely that the ide-scsi.o module doesn't have anything
to do with USB. It's the SCSI emulation layer driver for the IDE interface.
You probably need one of the USB block storage drivers located under
/lib/modules/2.2.18/usb instead.

You can try inserting the usbcore and usb-storage modules, and  the scsi
drive module sd_mod.  Also make sure that /dev/sda4 is correct, I'd
expect it to use /dev/sdx1 where x is the first unused SCSI device.

This didn't work for me to support a HP315 camera under 2.2.18 though.
I had to go to the new 2.4.0 kernel and then it worked.

This is because, as I understand it, USB was developed for 2.4 kernels
and back ported to 2.2.x in 2.4, they rewrote the scsi bits so the usb
backport talks with a texas accent which offends the 2.2.18 scsi driver.
all joking aside, usb is supported, usb filesystems are not. if you want
to use your zip, either take it out of it's case and hook it in with an
ide cable or upgrade to 2.4 (I'd chose the former if you're interested.)

Waell now, I opted for 2.4.0 since there seemed to no way for me to
adapt the camera to IDE, but then you must also talk to hardware with
a Georgia peach accent.  Everyone knows that's the best accent to use
for hardware. ;)

There are some problems with ppp-2.4.0 and the 2.4.0 kernel with
getting options from /etc/ppp/options.ttySx files.  Try ppp-2.4.0b3
if you use an options.ttySx.  Or use ppp-2.3.11 which seems to work
with the 2.4.0 kernel despite the 2.4.0 minimum requirement given in
Documentation/Changes.

Following the Linux mini ASDL howto, which seems to be a good place to
learn something about ADSL, ANT = ADSL Network Termination.

If you have a ANT that connects to a NIC on the linux box then it should
be easy (really easy to *say* that since I've no ADSL experience, BTW).

If you have a ANT that connects to a USB connector on your box then you
may be out of luck.  But there are drivers for some USB "modem" support
in the 2.4.0 kernel source, and there is support for using a standard
serial card with a USB connection (for using PPP?).

If you have a PCI integrated ANT/NIC card then there is not likely to
be a Linux driver for it.

Good luck, and thanks for qualifying "yank"; aren't all U.S. citizens
called "yanks" by all aussies? :)

1. PROBLEM: DHCP doesn't work in 2.2.18?

I've compiled kernel 2.2.18 with DHCP support for
diskless workstation. And I noticed, that machine
doesn't send DHCP requests.

2.2.16 in identical configuration works good.

Is it really bug?

I'm sending my .config in attachment.
