I am a newbie and disabled so I rely on my computer to communicate with the outside world. I am currently unhappily using Windows ME and I would love to change to LINUX. I have installed the Knoppix CD to test it out, and I love it!!
except for one problem-I Cannot connect to my ISP using the PPP dialup feature. My modem stalls at "initialization" and does not dial out. I have a hardware modem-US Robotics 56K PCI fax/modem, is this OK? Do I need a linux driver or must I supply a new initialization string? Please help. I would love to use LINUX but I desperately must dial out to communicate with others, so this is an EMERGENCY. Please help.
