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.

Alright, got a dual boot working just fine with Windows XP with Fedora Core. Everything works just fine, except for my dial up connection. Yes, shocking, dialup, I know. When I tell Fedora to autodetect the modem, it can't find it. I then tried quering the modem manualy, but it couldn't find it.
Any thoughts on why this is happening, and how would we set this up?
I didn't think of trying that. Here's the info that printed.

You probably don't need all of that, but I figured I'd post it all just in case. I also ran a script I had found at linmodems.technion.ac.il called scanModem.gz. The information I got from that is listed below.
FYI, I'm also running Fedora 3.

We got it working. When you go to http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/first.html they'll give you a script called scanModem. That will print out information about your modem's chipset and what drivers you need to get for it. The one that I needed was available at Linuxant.com.
I wouldn't have even had to post here if I had just read through all the documentation that printed out from the script. But now anyone else who reads this will know where to go for a solution, and I found a good forum. :P
