Feasgar math...

Greetings,
I am currently running RedHat 6.2. That system has an old Texas Instruments (XPVS336I T2 33.6Kbps FDSP)ISA 'Hardware' modem.

Is there a web site anyone can point me to that will give me a good overview of the processes involved in configuring/seting up a modem in linux.

Thanks in advance,

Greagh

If its a hardware modem then there is very little setup to do. So long as your kernel has serial port support you should be able to access it under one of the /dev/ttyS devices. Have a look at http://linuxdocs.org/HOWTOs/Modem-HOWTO.html for details.

Thanks very much for the URL, looks just like what I need.

Another question: Is there one or two of the various Linux flavors that are attuned more to Business than the others?

Thanks in advance...

Greagh
