Aight, so I figured I was in for the long haul, when I came to realize that no data/drivers/support for my specific "modem?" where available from the usual resources.
Never really spent an time with linux, decided to dive right into slack 9.1 with no X. Thats where I am at the moment. To complicate matters furthers because of geographical conditions or something (probably government conspiracy) I only have access to dial-up. All my computers have internal modems, I have never even looked at and my computer knowledge is very limited. I did the research on this particular box's modem, which is,
MOD # F-1156IV/R9F
"Conexant HCF V90 56k Data/Fax PCI Modem"
FCC PArt 68 Reg. NO.
Anyway what brings me here is when finding the command "lspci -vv" and running it, I noticed that unlike the majority of the other devices, besides a sound card, that the modem was recognized. Specifically it did not show the "Unknown Device 010f" message. Instead listing "Subsystem: GVC Corporation Dell Copper" and some other information following.
Is this good news by any chance? If so what can I interpret from it and how does it effect my capabilities?
Thnx in advance for any help, and if the information I provided wasn't enough, or was totally off base, please point me in the right direction or ask a specific Q.
