LTmodem (pci) problems

Hello there,

I have recently downloaded DSL which I think is brilliant!

Works fine on my Laptop (1yr old) but my plan with DSL is to drag people like my Dad away from windows .

I managed to get DSL working on his old p100 machine with the help of a boot disk. the only problem at the moment is that DSL is not recognising his LTmodem (pci slot).

I know there are drivers that you can d'l for LTmodems but I think you need the kernel source code to use them?

Any help much appreciated I shall carry on trying in the mean time.

BTW, my Dad is totally sold on DSL and will be doing the HD install! Just want to make sure he will be able to access the net when he does

Wow. I still have this link.

Yeah - you need the kernel source ( ) - if DSL doesn't have a way to get DSL-specific stuff and then need to compile the drivers. I *highly* recommend buying a cheap external hardware modem (or even DSL - net connection, not Damn Small Linux - if possible). Some people may have easy installs and flawless operation. I had *huge* headaches and when I finally got them 'working' it crashed my box as often as it connected to the net. However, until my cheap used hardware modem died *g*, it worked great.
