Me thinks you meant "none" rather than "non" of the above,
which is the correct choice, btw.

This has nothing to do with your linux distro

This has nothing to do with your linux distro, if your linux distro does not recognize your win-modem (aka softmodem) other linux distributions will not recognize it either.

I used Redhat for years, but when buying my latest laptop i tried the Live CD of Ubuntu, and decided to give it a try. I have had few problems with it, Actually NO problems with the OS, just a few 'educational opportunities' for me.

I would choose Ubuntu as it has the heart of linux and you can do pretty much anything fom your terminal session ( as it should be)

I've got my shell scripting, awk, sed,cut, grep, vi, perl;
Ive got several GUI interfaces to choose
package management is easy, but still remains flexible
no major hardware issues, some yes, but relativly easily solved

I did not stop liking Red Hat, but I'll stick with Ubuntu for now

Silly reason of the week !!!!----> many newbies who want to try linux start with Ubuntu. I should be on a 'first name basis' rather than 'just knowing the family'

I used RedHat 9.0 for one month in 2003. If it had been the only
Linux distro, I would happily only use Windows today.

Thank God for Slackware.

I run Slackware 12.1. I have a PCMCIA modem that udev detects and sets up the ttyS1 device for but does not create the /dev/modem symlink for thatb many device drivers seem to rquire. You might try checking the /sys/bus/usb folder for info on where udev may have set up your modem at. I do not have a usb modem so I can not say for sure. My PCMCIA modem shows up at ttyS1. If I then do a ln -sf /dev/ttyS1 /dev/modem it will create the necessary symlink. If you find that this is the problem you can generally create a bash script to run at but in say rc.local which will do this automatically for you.
