which com port does windows think the modem is on? did it put it on com 3 or 4 ? if so, you may have to go into the bios and disable the on- board com 2 (or com 1) to free up the irq's for the modem.

Okay, so i load and it should auto detect, im not sure if it does or how to tell if it does. Would it be in that list of things that runs by when you boot, and it says Okay or somthing after each item? If so it goes by rather fast, not sure if i could catch it. After i get my modem detected how do i set up a connection to my ISP? I cant find any new connection thingy in linux.
Also, my printer still isnt working, it apears to be installed properly, do i need a driver in order for it to work? Same with sound card?

Is no one willing to help? Isnt there a site somewhere that will tell me how to configure my modem, and not "To configure your modem copy /dev/r265sdta23/ to /m35/246217216 then run 326v4ve45vdft and then tell the computer that your modem is fast."

Well, depending on what distro your using, the most common dialup connection is Kppp in KDE. Pretty easy to configure and self explanatory.
Your printer, yeah, you might need to attain a driver for it, or properly configure it in your printcap file, not an expert on printers in Linux.
and your sound, what kind of card do you have? you can always check out www.alsa-project.org or www.ossound.com for info getting your sound to work or for drivers even for it.

Try logging into the KDE desktop, at the login point, and then goto the K button at the bottom left hand corner.

Click it, then follow the menus: networking - remote access

It should be here. It may also be called Internet Dialer. What distro have you installed?

A distro is a quick way of saying distribution, which is the name given to the many different types of Linux which is distributed.

E.g it should say that my distro (on the left) is Mandrake 8.0. There are loads of them, so it helps to know which one you have.

Its better, let me put it that way.

More H/W is supported, so it may work better for, or make it easier.
