Ok, I found out two things (my how I've grown in such a short time
.) Those inf files aren't there by default. I thought I restarted after the failed install and they were there. Nope. It was same session as the install.
So, I DLed the Linuxant .tar.gz drivers. Everything works except the installs to the /usr directory.
I've even tried 777'ing ALL of /usr. No Dice. /usr is read-only and on the CD only.
So I'm outta luck there.
Are my only final options:
Buy a linmodem?
