Kernel modules

The whole Kernel modules section is confusing. Is it mandatory? What exactly should we do?

- Other guy:

So im a begginer on Linux.

By reading this page i couldnt learn how to use CUPS or to print a document in linux.

And its not the fist time i try reading this page.

There is no place saying: "ok now your printer should be working!", i dont even know if i may test my printer.


I mean ok, i must install a lot of things, its done, oh and i have to put "cupsd" on the DAEMONS array in the file /etc/rc.conf

(note that this file (rc.conf) is not cited, which could make harder for "real" beginers (more inexperienced than me) to understand)

After a install all that,... Then what?

Thigs are working now? i can go to my open-office click on print and my printer will be there? what was this all about?

And other think i dont want to know about "web interface", im with my printer right next to me!, i just want to use it on linux.

Web Interface should be separated from normal usb printers, this way is really confusing.

Well, i will try to read other manuals,

Sorry for my bad english, and for being irritated =P.
