I am running Mandrake 9.1 and am totally new to Linux. I
didn't even know what the mandrake control center was
until 2 days ago. I ran make and everything successfully
compiled. Now, I have a couple of .o files in the src
directory. What is supposed to be my next step??? BTW,
I tried insmod acc100_pci.o and the message I get
says "acx100_pci.o: init_module: No such device" Can
somebody please help me?

    try the following in your acx100 directory

    insmod src/acx100_pci.o firmware_dir=firmware

    Typically when you compile from source (using source that
    somebody provided you), you do the following:

    make clean; make; make install

    The 'make install' portion of the build process needs to be
    done as root, because you'll be writing to portions of the
    filesystem on which regular users do not have write
    permission. In this case, it will install the module (the .o
    files) into the expected locations (for drivers, this is
    usually under /lib/modules/.../kernel/drivers). Then, you
    can insert the module into your kernel by typing 'modprobe
    acx100_pci' (once a module is in the correct location,
    modprobe can find it and try to automatically load it for
    you, and you don't need to type the '.o').

    The other problem you may be running into is that 'root' is
    the only user allowed to insert and remove kernel modules.
    If you are not root (or a user with root permissions via
    'sudo' or some other tool), insmod will typically fail.

    Please report back in case you still need some directions to
    get the driver running. Thanks!

    Setting to pending - no reaction for quite some while, so
    this Support Request could be closed, but it might be useful
    for others, so I'll leave it open.

    Hmm, no, pending doesn't have any advantage (people would
    have to explicitly select "pending" Requests to actually see
    it), so let's close it instead...
