After working on it more last night, I realized, I do not think I have the modem set up right. It does not do anything. I was reading man pages a good bit trying to sort this out. First, should I be using minicom or ppp to get things going? Second, would dmesg show my modem once I get this straight? The next question is DNS. When I set up PPP it wanted a specific address but my ISP says the use dynamic addresses. I was able to set this up in SuSE as they had a field to toggle for DNS. Am I using the right config tools?
The sound. Dmesg shows the soundblaster. Am I supposed to do a makedev?
I will be checking some more with my isp. I am not as concerned with the sound as I am with the internet. I need the internet to help google for answers
It is a pain googling and downloading on my wife's windows machine.
Oh, curious about
: I have a usb thumb drive I used when I had windows. Will slackware recognize this? I have not tried yet. If I plugged it in how would I be able to see if it was recognized?
[Edit] I got the required server addresses from my isp. Now, how can I make sure where my modem is? Should I just try the different com settings?
Thanks for any help,
