Ok , but I am not understanding what exactly i need to copy where?
I think it will be complicated for me, if i don't now, what data should 
I replace.
I don't have so much  experience with kernel hacking.

Another solution more ease for me, can be if is a way to configure two 
cards, I have installed all so one leadtek winfast 2000 XP. where the 
remount control is working. What I don't now, if is possible to set up 
2  card at the same time, so that the IR work over the winfast 2000 XP.

So far I don't have any information how to do this, all ways I get 
recognized only one card and not the 2 cards.

I have a backup from my system, so that I can regenerate as was, with 
the web cam working.

Best regards, Francisco Demeter.
