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.

rpm -i LNUX_3ComMdm-1.0-1.i386.rpm >ENTER
message: "package already installed"
I took out the floppy and went into DrakConnect and configured my Internet connection. The modem is on COM3 under Windows. I had checked COM3 in DrakConnect Configuration Wizard. And still the connection is failed.
Please tell me what I am doing wrong.
In regards to the kppp, I meant I typed it all in lower case "kppp" pressed enter and no such directory. Then I went into Install packages List and I cant even locate it there. (this was few days ago).
Is there any other dialer that I could use? Or just stick with the Drak Connect Config under NIC in MCC???
Please tell me what Im doing wrong.
If all else fails, then I need to get an external modem.
Im using the new Modem 5610B for Windows and Linux.
I downloaded the driver files what yuo gave me in USR website (the RPM file)
Downloaded it to a floppy under Windows. Then I booted into Linux put the floppy in the drive and typed the exact command what you gave me.
root@myname: mount /mnt/floppy
root@myname: cd /mnt/floppy
root@myname: rpm -i LNUX_3ComMdm-1.0-1.i386.rpm
message: Package already installed
(This was last night)
Then I went into the MCC and under DrakConnect, I began configuring my ISP, Phone#, Login ID, password, PAP blah blah......
Then it showed me the list of COM Ports and I selected the COM3 since my modem is on COM3 under Windows.
Then, it asked me if I wanna connect to the net Now or Later so i clicked on Yes (now). It then started to do a connection test and said "Connection Failed please reconfigure your config settings" or something like that.
However, the eth0 is not booted upon boot. I disabled the eth0. I dont know if thats the problem.
