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.

Hi guys, I am currently running RH9 (2.4.20-8 kernel) and am trying to get 2 (and in the future more then 2) dial up internal modems working at the same time but I'm having a bit of trouble...
They are both modems based on the Intel 536EP chipset and are using the Intel supplied drivers (the modem manufacturer don't supply Linux drivers) and I can get either card working ok, but not both at the same time (i.e. I can install one and if I try and install the new one the old card is ignored). I am a bit of aLinux newbie so Im not sure if the ability to drive two modems at once is kernel dependent or if it relies on the drivers supplied, can anyone help?
For a bit of background: this is to be used as a dial-in server which can accept multiple dial in connections at the same time.
output of lspci if that helps:

Also if it turns out I will not be able to do this with internal modems, would it be possible to buy a pci serial card and install multiple external modems to each seperate physical COM port?
