Post Not that much


I just report problems so they can fix them. Like the bad modem. I may need that sucker one day and it will be dead.

They have only called twice after I offered the info. Usually I just read it off the screen. They are mostly windoze people I think. Just linux for the servers.

Anyway, I try to help people on here that I have never met. At least I have met them.

I try to help where I can. Being disabled makes your bored.

WHOA !!!!!

Is it not correct that if you dial it it will connect???

There's modem and adsl modem drivers out there for linux, and most isp's give you a username password and dialup number,,,, Hey presto your on.

There's no such thing as linux and windows support, it's called TCP/IP and it's a world wide protocol.

I've never ever had a problem with any ISP and linux or windows.

Yes, Evilone what you're saying is true.

My first Email exchange with my ISP was, sent them my requested name and password plus my credit card No.

They sent a two page Email confirming my name & password and the dial-up phone number.

Following the Email and very easy to follow Mandrake 9.0 step by step procedure, I was online with no problems .

Once I saw how this was done, it seemed like it would work with any dial-up ISP. This is what prompted my original question.
