Are you telling me that the usb device isnt recognized when putting it in the drive? You may have to mount the usb device and then just do a cp command to copy it to the computer.

If I install xp on my machine i need to install my wireless card drivers manually. On the 7.10 desktop edition it is recognized automatically, but on the server edition it wont connect to the internet, im not sure how to set it up.
