Agreed. I, however, think this IS homework, based on the detailed-but-vague questions at the beginning, and the fact that the OP has never said it WASN'T homework, despite it being said several times. And if it was 'work'...wouldn't a programmer who was hired to write a device driver at least know the basics?

Your explanations have been great, regardless.

I don't understand why are you still posting vague messages here and else where (i don't know)and JUST increasing your points, This is a time waste for me and also other people who are just beginners and reading this post, PLEASE............ let other people participate and post relevant and meaningful messages,

Atleast you can have a look how sundialsvcs replies which is not only meaningful but also straight, you should learn from him.

My last post was to sundialcvs, not to you. And there was nothing 'vague' about it.

Then don't read them or respond to them.

Just others who don't feel like putting effort into understanding things. And apparently, you've been asking this question for MONTHS now:

You seem to be 'confused', no matter how many times you're spoon-fed an answer.

AGAIN, I can't stop anyone from posting anything.

You just need to learn, but don't seem to want to put effort into things. Your behavior is childish and rude.

Generally, on a linux system, drivers for things such a uarts come with the kernel as standard. Unlike Windows there should not be a need too go looking for drivers for these. Even in '93 serial ports were not a problem.

To talk to your modem you will need one of two things, depending on what yoy wish to do.

To talk directly you will need a program like the old 'minicom'. If you just want to use the modem to connect to a dial-up line for internet use then you will be running a ppp program point-to-point protocol). I don't know (or care) about Gnome, but with a kde desktop you have kppp that should make your life easier.

Personally I am not sure that this *does* sound like a homework problem. Sounds to me more like a new-to-linux-from-windows problem
