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.

US Robotics PCI 5636 [says linux supported for kernel 2.4+]
Redhat Linux 9.0
Everytime i restart it has a generic modem. It is on /dev/ttyl1. All my information is in that is necessary to log on. I am just converting to Redhat Linux 9.0 so im not so sure where to get support. I tried newsgroups, irc, etc. but nobody really feels like helping. If anyone can guide me through this please help me out, thanks so much!
I understand your frustration at no replies, but double posting is generally frowned upon. As to your post, I personally have never heard of /dev/ttyl1 (if that's a lower case L in there) perhaps its a red hat thing, google it and see. Anyway, if the modem is plugged in the serial port 1 you want /dev/ttyS0 as the port. Anyway, something for you to try.
ok, sorry for being retarded, you said at the beginning it was PCI. Ok, if you post up the output from lspci and any relevant lines from dmesg (you could try 'dmesg | grep obotics' to get some lines about the modem) you do this by typing the commands into the terminal, or command line, or whatever rh calls it. Also, if you start kppp from the command line you might get some useful error messages appearing. Post them too!
Have a look if there's any relevent documentation installed on your box already (in /usr/doc or /usr/local/doc or something similar.) If not have a look at ldp.org. I know nothing about internal modems on linux i'm afraid, but if you post this stuff up someone might be able to help.
i wasnt using kppp before instead i was just using the internet configuration *duh* i reposted this message[sorta] in hardware and got a good reply that ALMOST worked except it says modem busy. If someone reads it you may be able to help me out!
find a better driver. Some modems ass the netdragon have one driver that came with the cd and also you can find many versions of the same driver as you can.. so search for another driver and see what happens.
