RedHat9 modem mission impossible


I am aware that many questions like this have been asked but i could not find one relating to fujitsu modems. I have windows and redhat 9 side by side on my Dell pc. I have an external fujitsu fdx310 adsl usb modem. I'm sure you have already guessed that it works fine on windows and not on linux. Does anyone have any experience with this this type of modem or some good advice of what i can do?

Thankyou for any help.

Thanks for the reply, Peacedog. Unfortunately i don't know enough about compiling drivers etc and i am a bit confused. Would you be able to break it down for me?

Thankyou.

that second link's instructions are pretty specific, though they may seem
vague to the uninitiated.
if they seem vague, you're going to learn a lot about linux and typing and
compiling and installing packages before you actually get it to work.

do what you can, then post which step you are stuck on, and what error
message you get.

A: save the drivers to a disk and then go into linux open them


you'll have to extract them like a zip file (windows speak). then compile
them, probably. that's what the make command does.
