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.

Windows says that its a conexant modem, but i have found out there are several versions of the same computer(HP nx9010) well i tried several times to install the drivers from conexant (there are two) but had no sucess,suddenly after enabling a compatible sound card module (trident)
my modem is being set correctly by kppp as stated before. I think that these devices are linked in some way (probably i am talking nonsense but they are onboard devices and under windows there is numerous sound devices related to my modem). Can you help ? Why does a modem stuck on initilization process ? Thanks for any reply !
"To identify your modem chipset, you can try the Conexant List Modem
Tool below, scanModem (a modem detection script by Marv Stodolsky)
or Linux command-line utilities (such as "/sbin/lspci", "/sbin/lspci
-nv", or "cat /proc/pci") to list the devices present on your system.
BEWARE: some PCI IDs, notably 127A:1025 and :2005 were used for both HCF and HSF modems, so you might have to try both drivers to find out which one works.
If you have a RipTide HCF modem (127A:4321 or 127A:4331), you need
to install both the RIPTIDE and HCF drivers, otherwise the modem
will not work. RipTide HSF modems (127A:4311 or 14F1:4311) require
only the HSF driver, on top of which the RIPTIDE driver can be
optionally installed to add audio, synth, midi, and gameport
If you have an ordinary (non-RipTide) HCF or HSF modem, you do not need the RIPTIDE driver."
well, before i installed the trident module i would get :
Module Size Used by Not tainted
soundcore 3332 0 (autoclean)
ds 6568 1
yenta_socket 9632 1
pcmcia_core 38112 0 [ds yenta_socket]
ide-scsi 8048 0
i just found this at a wiki "how-to install red9.0 on nx0910" :
"Use the alsa driver for this sound card (snd-ali5451) if you want
to use the sound card and the modem at the same time. The trident module can
even hangs the notebook while playing audio and accessing the Internet using the
modem. This happens probably because the sound and modem are the same chip and
the trident module conflicts with the modem driver. "
