trouble installing drivers for PCTel chipset
i am new to Linux, and have been trying to get my modem to be recognized. I realize that the PCtel chipset is a proprietary windows modem.
I downloaded the drivers that I needed, but when it came time to install them I got hung up. I unpacked it, and unarchived it. Went through the install instructions, and when it came time to pick the type of chipset I was using, I kept getting the message, cant find the appropriate source in $PATH, now I realize that is an environment variable, but how do I find out what I need to do next to get my modem recognized by linux. I would go buy a different one, but well, that is just not an option at this point, so working with what I have. Any information regarding this will be so much appreciated and helpful.
Thank you all in advance for help
