Problems installing BCM Modem Drivers on Fedora Core 1
I'm sort of a n00b to linux, but I've solved all of my hardware problems except with one. I have a Dell 4550, with the "Broadcom BCM V.90 Modem", which is supposedly a softmodem. I've read the tutorials here (at least most of them, i think), with to no avail. I've donwloaded several versions of the drivers, all for different versions (including the Dell ones). I compiled the drivers to my version using differnt sets of instructions as exactly as I could, and each time I got a plethora of errors. I noticed that some of the errors were because it was looknig in different folders (obviously directory structures that were in older versions).
Anyway, here's the modem readout from lspci.......

Hope that's any help....i know its probably just some stupid error that I'm making, but thx to all who help :-)
