Hello Chippie,

External modems maybe not need drivers, but to my experience work much better with the right init string.

With kind regards,

Richard

USB devices always need drivers

external modems that run through a serial I/O port need simply a correct init string

and to uninstall OOo simply got o the Mandrake Control Center -> Software -> Add/Remove -> Remove it
Then *hope* the RPM on the magazine is compatible, because it will take forever to download on your 56K
