Have you searched for the RPM package for that modem? It certainly would be easier to install. Perhaps some kind soul has built a package that will work on Redhat 9.0.

BTW, it's a good idea for a newbie to start with the next-to-last release of a distro because the bugs have been worked out and more packages are available. Newbies usually opt for the latest and hardest to get help on, it seems.

rpmfind
Easier software management: apt4rpm - Red Carpet

I really like the $14 external modem I use. I tossed my winmodem crap in the trash as soon as I discovered it was locking my computer up.

I think i should just uninstall gcc 3 and install gcc 2.96. I'm almost there. What is the point of starting something else?? I might even get lost more. How do i unistall gcc 3 and how do i install gcc 2.96??

what are you using to install and uninstall things?
redhat setup? kpackage
you can use kpackage and uninstall gcc 3.
gcc 2.9X is probably installed too, but the newer version
is being used andi can't remember how to make
gcc use the older version.
i think in kpackage it would be under
development,
languages.
it's all stuff on the redhat cdroms

all you have to remove is whatever begins with
gcc-3.0 something. it's one package. i don't know for
sure whether or not the uninstaller will set gcc-2.XX
back up right.
but,
you can uninstall 3.XX and try to do the configure and
make. if it doesn't work. remove gcc-2.XX also, and
put it right back.
then go back to the pctel dir and try again.

Be forewarned: you may break other developmental packages as well The Redhat 9.0 release was built with the newer one.

these are the package names from redhat 7.2
the name should be very similar to the gcc3-3.0.1-3
one below here

gcc-2.96-98.i386.rpm gcc3-3.0.1-3.i386.rpm
gcc-c++-2.96-98.i386.rpm gcc3-c++-3.0.1-3.i386.rpm
gcc3-objc-3.0.1-3.i386.rpm
gcc-objc-2.96-98.i386.rpm

The only thing i notice in the development package was something like 2.4.20.8. That was it. I did not see anything about gcc 3. I didn't even notice that was being a 2.4.20.8 until it started to install it and it told me.

under kde, start the program called kpackage and
look under development, languages.

i can't remember, but under the add packages thing,
you might just be looking under the part that adds
packages, and it will not show what packages you
have installed, just the ones you don't have installed.
if you look under remove packages, it will show only
packages you have installed.

you can do that under kpackage or the add/remove
thing you are using.

you can also from the prompt as root
rpm -q gcc
then it will list all the gcc stuff installed
you can then
rpm -e gcc3whatever

http://www.redhat.com/docs/manuals/l...hical-rpm.html

from the redhat site:

33.2. Removing Packages

To remove all the package installed within a package group, uncheck the checkbox beside it. To remove individual packages, click the Details button beside the package group and uncheck the individual packages.

When you are finished selecting packages to remove, click the Update button in the main window. The application computes the amount of disk space that will be freed as well as the software package dependencies. If other packages depend on the packages you selected to remove, they will be automatically added to the list of packages to be removed. Click the Show Details button to view the list of packages to be removed.
