Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Went to Conexant Site, downloaded HCF driver, installed per the instructions. HCFConfig says my modem is to be found under /dev/ttySHCF0. Go to Mandrake Control Center Hardware Configurator, and Winmodem shows up under ?Other. No module is shown when I click on it. Go to Network Config section tell it to autodetect Winmodem and it does not find it. Tried telling it detect regular modem and pointed it to /Dev/modem and that did not work either. Go back into Hardware Config in Mandrake Control Center, check the option at the bottom to autodetect modem, and now a modem shows up in list, but nothing appears when I click on it. Winmodem still showing up under ?Other. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling the rpm several times, but with same result. I would appreciate some other things to try at this point . (Yes I am already considering getting an external modem) , but would like to get the winmodem running if I could...its a challenge, and I'm weird that way!!
Haha, you'll kick yourself for this, it's so easy, and I've done it before.
Just install Kppp from the KDEbase on your cd, and tada, a nice easy dialer which'll work fine
The MCC never seemed to work for me, but Kppp's fine. Just know if your isp uses PAP or CHAP.
Any problems, try running hcfpciconfig again, as root or otherwise.
You didnt? It should be the same thing (turn off embedded mode in the MCC to see it's identical). Maybe you told it you didnt have a cd at install, and thus it removed that cd as a valid source for rpms. Check the Software Sources Manager to see if the cds are all still listed.
