You're going to need to give us a little more information
ie: distro
kernel version
what are the drivers called?
is there a readme on the cd? if so, read it
also, the excessive use of emoticons is a little much.

I see, you mean you clicked on each letter of the word, I can see the mis-understanding.

Also, is there any chance you can plug that bad boy in via an ethernet cable, or is USB your only choice?

Cool

There is no a readme file and I don't know what karnel is.

I downloaded fedora last 3 days and installed yesterday

The kernel is the core of every operating system. Even windows and mac have one, but they don't let you touch it 'cause they aren't open-source. Linux lets you modify it. That is good, because you can choose what you need and don't need in your kernel. Having less things will speed up your machine. You can also contribute to the kernel, if you're a programmer, and let everybody have it. That's the good thing about open-source things, which companys like Microsoft lack. To see the kernel version, type uname -r at a command prompt.

Re: How to install adsl modem for fedora core 3 ?

The command prompt is the one that I find to run it but I can't find the icon of the cmp.

Can anyone tell me where is the cmp icon ?

Hello Saint's Knight,

Download from the Billion website, the driver source (called Linux standard driver, size 2.64MB, first in the list)

You need the Kernel source to install this driver, Fedora Core 3 doesn't installs the Kernel source by default.

Follow the read me which comes with the driver source

Driver download

Hi

Newbie myself, so appologies if what I say is stupid/misleading:
FC3 does not install the compilers if you install a client machine. you would need to install a workstation at the very least to have this tool, which would let you use the make command

Probably the easiest way to get the development packes is to become root using "su -" (no quotes) at a command prompt, and then type "redhat-config-packages" (it might be "system-config-packages -- I'm not sure and I don't have a FC3 machine handy). Anyhow, once the package configurator launches, install all of the packages in the "development" section. Then build the driver.

You'll need to insmod it as root, which is the superuser account on *nix systems (kind of like administrator in NT based Windows. but more powerful).
