I've tried fedora distros in the past but eventually just gave up because I could never find a modem to work with my system. I bought some that were supposedly Linux compatible but were never noticed or found on installation.
Also other than surf the web I like to back up movies with DVDShrink. maybe it will run under WINE have no idea.
So I have a distro of Ubantu that I got months ago and am tempted to give it a try. Is this going to be another no modem found type of headache? Guess I'll find out.
Question if I ever get DSL out here in the boonies are there carriers that have software that works with Linux or
is there software that runs on linux to fool the dsl modem? And is it possible to back up my movies with out re-writing the kernel
