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.

If you have a pctel chipset there is drivers out there for it. I've got a pctel chipset modem too and i dont know where to being installing drivers and whatnot. Save your grief like trickykid said and go out and by an external modem. Thats what i'm gonna do.
installed the drivers, and i'm connected...but....
i installed the drivers as it said and they work fine under root. But when i go to my other account i get all these errors like the modem is not there...i tryed using the insmod /lib/modules/2.2.14-5.0/misc/pctel.o
and insmod /lib/modules/2.2.14-5.0/misc/ptserial.o
like the directions said but it doesn't work. It says
insmod the command in not found in bash
