    i dowloaded the drivrs for sm56 from sm56.tk
    they are for both gcc2.x and gcc3
    what is gcc where can i get it
    and int the steps of installing the drivers the last instruction was "make install" what does this mean

    gcc is the c compiler in linux. But if you download a driver it will give you a script called configure, so unzip and untar the driver change dir to the driver dir then give the folloing commands
    ./configure
    ./make
    su make install
    there the driver is installed if you see no error messages in the above three stages. The make file will automatically compile the drivers and make install will install them
    by the way now that you are into linux the best way to learn things is to read posts on various linux fourms.
