I assume you mean knoppmyth and Debian.  If so, both of those *should*
have the modprobe command on them.

You may indeed have the wrong card, or the wrong tuner being auto
probed.  The problem you'll run into with these cards is that it's
more of a hunt and guess game than a standard table living on some
website; today they may release card=3 on the cards with that same
name, tomorrow might be card=8.

Not a lot of help, but hopefully you see you can use the standard
linux commands on knoppmyth and Debian.
