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 tried to do a search with just "MRI-1456PCI-R modem linux" on google and turned up absolutely nothing. I tried other search engines and you're totally right... there are no linux drivers for this beast just yet... still, though, it is possible to write your own drivers- yes, it can be done-- check out this page... i have used the tutorial to write a driver for a piece of unsupported hardware although only once...and to be truthful i probably got lucky to make it work... maybe you can too... at th very least it has given me a fairly decent idea on how drivers are written and how to control hardware thru the operating system... give it a shot and see what you think...
Thanks I'll take your advice and put it some good use, maybe I'll get it to work?
If not can you give me an idea of a good modem to use with Mandrake?
I am very new to this and haven't even received the OS yet, just prepping early,
