Unhappy Redhat 8.0 & Adsl


Hello, I have tried to Run Linux a Couple of times but not having much luck.

System

1500xp AMD
Geforce 2 Ultra, 1 x 15gig HD, 1 x 60gig HD
ESC K7S5A Motherboard
INTEL AnypointDSL Modem 3240
(Using BTOpenworld ISP)

just Installed Redhat 8.0 but was unable to get the Modem to work or even light up, Driver is not listed in the Redhat Listings.
Carnt Find a Specfic Driver for the modem.

This is Proberbly a Really Common Type of Question for a newbie but is there a way to get the modem working on some sort of gerneric driver ??? Any Ideas will be Thanked

Hmmm....

I am sorry to say that I too have been facing the same problem. I have a aztech dsl 100 USB modem & I too put the same question to these people as to how I configure it, but no one seems to knwo anything. For the time being I think you must stick with windows.

However I found this driver thing. Though I have had problems running it, you can try it out-
