Newbie modem troubles


Hello all.

I have only been using Red hat (version 9, Kernel 2.4.20) for three weeks now, and haven't "quite" got used to using the terminal (though thank goodness I had used DOS before!).

Anyway, I can't get my modem to run, though I just know I am missing out something incredibely stupid: It is an intel5628 V.92 modem, which I have searched for on google, and come up with nudda. I read though a previous thread where someone was having problems with thier modem in SUSE, and I did most of what was said there, i.e. checking that it was listing it as a pci device, and using cat /proc/pci

but when I used this it did not come up with an io, just:

Bus 0, device 10, function 0:
communication controller: PCI device 8086:1040 (intel corp.)(rev 0).
IRQ 10.
master capable. latency = 64.
non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xcf800000 [0xcfbfffff]

I had a look though the How-to which the thread related to, but it confused me (probably due in part to lack of sleep ).

As I say, I'm sure it's simple, but I is dumb.

Just to add further, I have tried lspci -vv, as suggested by the How-to, but it doesn't show up an I/O like my network card does, It doesn't even mention that the I/O is disabled, like the How-to said it might.

Have a look at www.pcworld.co.nz ,past articles-authors-Geoff Palmer-Linux part 2.This should help you get started.It would also help if you could use setserial and wvdial.
