Talking new guy...


hello;

i am a noobie to linux (days of experience!) and have installed REDHAT 8.0 on my PC...
I have an ALCATEL Speedtouch USB ADSL modem which i want to use with LINUX and to do so i am using the procedure from:

http://www.linuxdude.co.uk/docs/Alca...WTO/index.html[/URL]

i get up to PATCHING THE KERNEL, (section 2)

and then i come across a problem......

it tells me to Test the pppoatm-1 patch:

patch -p1 -s -E --dry-run < /path/to/pppoatm-1

what does the expression "/path/to/" mean? what do i put in here? does anyone know??

Thanks for any advice..

it means where the files are. e.g if you have put this pppoatm thingy in /usr/src then /path/to/ is /usr/src.

Hey look, acid got a compliment.. quick, take a picture, someone....

Actually I'm just kidding, acid might come on strong at times but that's a good thing I think.. and he always means well.
