Question install modem 536ep


hi, new to linux, have just installed mandrake 9.1 dual boot xp home,
i have it running 2wks now, i'm probably lazy but i NEED to get my modem going,
got my radeo9800 pro installed (with alot of effort!). all runs fine except my onboad raid and modem.

i have an intel 536ep modem, i got the drivers from intel's website.
i just don't know howto to install them..
i don't want to search for or even use rpm's as i want to learn basics first and using tarballs is as i presume essential to knowing linux?

i love they way linux is, it's free and still nutured.
any help would be greatly apreciated, as i hate rebooting each time i want to check something out!

thanks



long may it last........

Ok first of all you should unpack files in some temp directory like /root/hardware/536ep
then you should login as root, then

cd /root/hardware
make clean
make 536ep
make install

That's it!
Now try to search your /dev/ folder for device 536ep
After this use something like Tools/Network Device Control (I never used Mandrake 9.1)
and and configure it so thet your modem will be represented as /dev/modem
after this use kppp to setup your internet connection
