Do i have to use the terminal to log in as root? I can give you a really good reason why i don't know how to log in as root. The reason is i'm not going to play with Redhat until i get my modem to work. Modem is really important to me. I know i have a dial up. Can you please help me log in?

you'll have to be logged in as root to install kernel
modules anyway. you can
su -
but you'll have to know the root password to login
anyway.

How the hell do you do that?? I can't even do that. Please help me. Can you tell me how did you do that? Ok. I tell you what i download. pctel-0.9.6.tar.gz. I have a PCTEL Platinum V. 90 modem. Is there anything else you need to know before i get my modem running? Oh tar zxvf pctel-0.9.6.tar.gz is no such file. Please tell me every little step you did. Thanks.

Did you read the install file - http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/pcte...-0.9.6/INSTALL
and the FAQ - http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/pcte...ctel-0.9.6/FAQ

To install:
open a terminal
type cd /the/folder/you/downloaded/to
Unpack the tarball by typing "tar zxvf pctel-0.9.6.tar.gz" without the quotes
type ./configure and press enter
when the command prompt returns type make
type su and press enter
type in root password and hit enter
Install the drivers by typing make install and hit enter
Type "insmod pctel" without the quotes and hit enter
Type "insmod ptserial" without the quotes and hit enter


Your modem should be installed.

How about copying the file from the cd to /home/username? Something I have seen under Win is that files on cd are read only - mybe copying it and changing it to read/write would sort out the problem...?

What did you do? How far did you get? Did you follow the install guide?

if you're back to xp now and you go back to linux
you will have to do some of the stuff over
if you put the stuff in your work directory, then
cd /work/pctel-0.9.6
su -
./configure
make
make install


there is a readme file you can look at in that
directory with
less README

./configure creates the Makefile
make compiles the driver according to the settings in
the makefile

i just checked
it's

./configure --with-hal=pct789

i think
