What do you get when you su to root and run "lspci -v"?

(sorry I don't use Fedora so I'm not familiar with their specific tools)

Your best bet is to run /sbin/lspci -v (or -vv) like ciotog said.
Find your modem name/device in the output, paste that into google and add 'linux' after it, and search. If you're lucky, the modem *might* work. If you have a Conexant modem, check out linuxant.com (you have to pay).

alright i have the driver, and it did recognize that it was there and gave em the name and everything its a Smart LInk PCI562 56k Modem. Now if this won't install what do I do? Can I use one of my networked computers (w/ xp) and connect through that and if so is it easier?

ok nvm on the how to install i got it to install by following the instructions that came with the driver and I setup my kppp account thing and it just says "starting modem" or something like that and would just stay on that, also in the harrdwar browser a "generic slamr" something appeared and i am thinking htat that is the modem. I'm lost and hope that someone else isnt lost and can help me.

In kppp can you query the modem and get responses? If so, put a check in the box that says something like "open log window" on the main connection page. This will give you info as to what's happening. If you feel up to it, better than that is opening kppp from a console - the console messages are often pretty useful.

IMO, you're better off setting up ppp0 under the redhat networking tools than using kppp, but that option may not be there if you're using a softmodem.

i did that not knowing what i did and i didnt get any responses but I'll try a little later. I'm also downloading Slackware 10 and if i can't get it to work then I'm going to try that.
