Unidentified subject!

i recently installed debian sarge by netinst minimal cd and the installer did not recognise my motorola sb5100 cable modem which was conneted by usb
i have no router, it was a direct connection

this is a cable modem distributed by Optus which is a very large telco in Australia so i am sure many people have this problem

debian needs a linux driver on floppy, the problem is motorola doesent make a linux driver, i have searched extensively and found this is a common problem among debian sarge users

strangely enough when using "damn small linux" which is a variant of debian, for some reason it automatically detected my modem allowed me to browse perfectly, this was the livecd version.

perhaps whatever it is that allows DamnSmallLinux to make this troublesome modem work could it be put into debian
