But you can mount filesystems by right-clicking EmelFM and open it as root.
Then go to /mnt directory. Then right-click and mount any of those filesystems.

this is almost what I want
one of my systems is slackware-11 with windows dule boot
it connects to a router through a usb port
another machine connects to the same router through a ethernet cable
both computers can acess the internet just fine
I haven't been able to set up slack to use this usb router BUT dsl dose configure the usb connection just fine all on it's own
now I want to
1) copy the configuration files to someplace else (that I can get to with slackware)
2) pick out the parts that set up the usb router
3) add the usb router configuration to slackware
Posted by curaga on Nov. 12 2007,14:35Oh. Well, there is no special configuration for usb routers.
DSL just loads the module for the router (with the autoconfigurator, ie the green bar), and then uses the dhcp client. To do the same in Slack, do "lsmod", and check which modules have been loaded.
Then just try "modprobe module" in Slack. When you get the right one, it will appear as eth0/eth1 and you can give it an ip address
