Default Add a PCI USB card

Sir,

I have a server with Debian 6.0, I would like to put a card to have an USB 2.0 ports.
I would like to know how Squeeze going to manage it at the first boot.
Thanks!
Regards.

I would like to suggest that you get a usb-3 card. If you should ever
want to

use an external drive of any kind --hard drive, CDrom, or whatever--it's
much faster, and more peripherals will be made to use usb-3 as time goes on.

I have an IO-PEU433 card in my machine. The card comes
from Koutech Systems, Inc. It has 3 external ports and one
internal. Unfortunately, the internal is the same kind of jack as the
external.

Running PCLINUXOS, and the card "just works." It requires a driver for
Windows, but Linux likes it with no fuss whatever. This unit has a VIA
Technologies controller, and comes on a PCI-Express card.

It's kind of expensive, and may be superseded by something, since
one of the large vendors no longer has any.

Just my 2˘ --doug

Most if not all USB cards will be automatically detected and work correctly.

the command "lsusb" will show you if the card is installed correctly or not.

Try this command before and after you insert the card.

Have you considered USB 3.0?

If the chipset of the PCI card is supported by the running kernel, it
should be transparently handled: detection and configuration. Nothing to
worry about.
