Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I think it sounds like the installation went swell, now you need to configure a dialer, I only use KDE, but I think Gnome has a "gnome ppp dialer" or similar. A good graphical dialer in KDE is "kppp", accessible via the main menu under internet.
In Windows it's similar, you have to go through Internet and network in the Control panel to configure the dialer. Not sure which one you have installed, which desktop manager you're using. You can also install wvdial which is a very proficient command line dialer, information regarding installing and using wvdial is in a testing.txt file or similar in the Modem folder containing all those documents.
I think all your compiling packages are indeed installed, I usually only compile modem and graphics modules which is all taken care of by a script. I've never dived into the "Hello world" thing. So....it's out of my league.

Alright, since my last response I have installed Wine and attempted to run AOL9.0 from my Windows Drive. Needless to say...it didn't work. But now slmodemd can't mount the modem...even if I do the two modprobe lines, then run the slmodemd line, I get an error:
error: mdm setup: cannot stat 'dev/slamr0': No such file or directory
error: cannot setup devic '/dev/slamr0'
I'm not sure what you all did to get where you're at, it may be necessary to visit the linmodems forum (to which there is a link to it on the first page), and find a tread similar to yours to compare. The email you sent in with the modemdata.txt should also be in the forums, whatever transpires in your case will be available for others in the future stumbling on the same blocks as you.
please I would like to get some tips about "gcc" NOT working in a my recently installed FC7.
My first problem is that I cannot compile C-code (e.g., when trying to compile the basic "Hello" example, I get: hello.c: In function ‘main’:
hello.c:3: warning: incompatible implicit declaration of built-in function ‘printf’).
Output uname -a
What version of gcc?
What is the command you use to compile?
The message reported is a warning... the resulting binary should work if there were no actual errors terminating the compile. So, what do you mean by: "gcc not working"?
Note... the thread is about installing gcc to fedora 7. Your post is about difficulty compiling. Start another thread and post the link in your reply to this post.

Well, I searched google with portions of my error messages, and the only (usable) solution was to use ungrab-winmodem....which I'm already using So I think I'll try a reinstall..and this time I know (somewhat) what I'm doing
And thanks for all you guys's help
<EDIT> Additional info:
[Rowls@localhost ~]$ su
[root@localhost Rowls]# /sbin/modprobe ungrab-winmodem
