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.

I am able to connect using this modem in linux, which would mean that it's not a winmodem (unless I am misunderstanding what a winmodem is). I just can't get the config to reload during reboot, and I am unable to see any config info inside HardDrake in the Mandrake control center.
So once again, what is the proper method of configuring this modem to load correctly during boot? If you still think it is a winmodem, could you please explain why?
Distribution: PCLinuxOS 0.93 and 0.92, Vector sometimes
If it isn't a winmodem, then try opening kppp ( Networking - Remote Access), and you should be able to create a new connection, using your modem. Click the Setup box, then go to Device. You will need to select each possible choice (unless you already know where it is located) - then try the Modem Tab and try Query Modem. Once you've found it, try Modem Commands to make sure - you should see some stuff about the Modem then.
Once you've done that, your connection should be saved - hopefully.
PS - I understand why previous posters thought it was a win modem. The only internal isa USR I've seen was also a winmodem, but it looks like you're lucky
