Unhappy linmodem


Hello all.

I have installed mandrake 8 on my pc and up to now I am very impressed but I can't get my modem to work. I have downloaded a driver for my winmodem but I can't seem to get it installed. Unfortunately I have used windows for alot of years and I don't understand how you install anything and I mean anything. I have a coverdisk and I can't install anything from that either. Please help me I would love to get rid of windows and move to LINUX.

Many thanks in advance

Kev

if you haven't already tried, go to www.linmodems.org - they've got pretty much all the drivers and how-to's that exist at the moment.

what kind of modem do you have?

.tar.gz
run :-
tar -zxvf 'file'.tar.gz
cd 'file'
./configure
make
make install

if it's a .bin
run:-
