I am trying to get usb networking w/ my 5500 under the 2.6.1 kernel and I was wondering if there was any good information on how to do this. I have found out a good amount of information on this, if anyone has any good information that would be great. I am also running OZ 3.2 if that helps. Thanks

Thank you very much, I figured out the problems I was having. Most were usb screw ups. Though there is really little along the lines of documentation for using 2.6.
So if you are like me and using a kernel >= 2.6, in the kernerl config under device drivers, usb support, enable (I did as a module) Multi-Pourpose USB networking framework (CONFIG_USB_USBNET). This will create the module usbnet which is a replacement for the rather craptastic 'usbdnet' in previous kernels. That is about the only real difference between using an older kernel and a more recent. Hopefully that might help other people.
