Sorry, I'm not quite clear on this point re "...use
modconf to install the module...."  Could you please
provide more detail with example.  Tks.

I think I have no place to transfer the HD back.  I
must reinstall the old motherboard, RAM, CPU, etc. (I
retain the box, graphic card, CDRom and CD writer)

How can I find it out in advance.  Tks.
