firstly, thanks to everybody who helped me troubleshoot my modem
i had a PCI internal modem andcould nto configure it..
i took your advice and bought an external and it works fine!
but i have a problem..when i try using PPP to connect to my ISP
i get the message,'ppp kernel module could not be loaded'
/sbin/modprobe -v ppp says 'cant locate module ppp'
what do i do? i also cant run my audio device since i recompiled
my kernel (now i got 2.4.17). so how do we install new modules?
