Question how to dial-up and config. my modem!


I am a Linux user for about two years.
Now i had recently assembled a computer. I did configure every device in window correctly and it just works just fine but under i had the idea of using Linux dial-up to access the Internet and the problem came with that i don't which name under /dev directory was my correct modem name and how i am going to setup the Internet Configuration Wizard for my dial-up connection!

I am using a Red Hat Linux 9 with "Linux-2.4.20-8-i686-RedHat-9-MODVERS" kernel with a HSFi Conexant modem and it's information shows below:

PCI Configuration Information:

Vendor ID:14F1
Device ID:2F00
Revision ID:1
Sub Vendor ID: 14F1
Sub Device ID: 2004

Reduced Information:

Vendor Name: Conexant
Device Name:HSFi; Data/Fax
Modem Type:HSF

It's there anybody who could help me!
Please!
I'll appreciate for that, if somebody got any idea.

# Compiling/installing kernel modules
You will need to have installed:
1. The developmental packages (compiler)
2. The kernel source code that matches your running kernel
3. The module source or install code

Check out your system and look under the hood and see if you installed the stuff you need to do the job. Open an x terminal and type in this sequence of commands to see what kernel we are running and see if you have the kernel source installed:
Code:
[fancy@tinwhistle phil]$ su -
Password: 
[root@tinwhistle root]# uname -r
2.4.18-3
I am running kernel version 2.4.18-3. Do I have the proper source code?
Code:
[root@tinwhistle root]# cd /usr/src
[root@tinwhistle src]# ls -alc
total 3
drwxr-xr-x    4 root     root          136 Jun 12 14:53 .
drwxr-xr-x   16 root     root          424 Jun  4 12:04 ..
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           14 Jun  4 12:11 linux-2.4 -> linux-2.4.18-3
drwxr-xr-x   16 root     root          584 Jun  4 12:11 linux-2.4.18-3
drwxr-xr-x    7 root     root          168 Jun  4 12:08 redhat
[root@tinwhistle src]#
I do have the same kernel version source code installed in the directory /usr/src/linux-2.4.18-3 and there is a symbolic link named linux-2.4 pointing to it.

If you don't see something similiar to this (but in color), you will need to install the kernel source.

NOTE: I noticed that Red Hat didn't make the symbolic link /usr/src/linux that all of the INSTALL files that I have read mentioned that I need, so I may as well make one now to save editing the files in the source code to install.So, I'll make it just now:
Code:
[root@tinwhistle src]# ln -s linux-2.4.18-3 linux         
[root@tinwhistle src]# ls -alc
total 3
drwxr-xr-x    4 root     root          160 Jun 12 15:46 .
drwxr-xr-x   16 root     root          424 Jun  4 12:04 ..
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           14 Jun 12 15:46 linux -> linux-2.4.18-3
lrwxrwxrwx    1 root     root           14 Jun  4 12:11 linux-2.4 -> linux-2.4.18-3
drwxr-xr-x   16 root     root          584 Jun  4 12:11 linux-2.4.18-3
drwxr-xr-x    7 root     root          168 Jun  4 12:08 redhat
[root@tinwhistle src]#
Ah, there it is, so that's done.

Next, did I install the compiler?
Code:
[root@tinwhistle src]# gcc -v          
Reading specs from /usr/lib/gcc-lib/i386-redhat-linux/2.96/specs
gcc version 2.96 20000731 (Red Hat Linux 7.3 2.96-113)
[root@tinwhistle src]#
Yes, I have a compiler installed.

If you don't have those two things installed, you have to install them first off your install CD.

If they are installed, download the source and happy comiling. Make sure you carefully read the README and INSTALL files after extracting and before compiling/installing.

but i had alread..........

but i had already installed hsflinmodem-5.03.27lnxtbeta03042700k2.4.20_8-1rh.athlon
.rpm, hsflinmodem-5.03.27lnxtbeta03042700k2.4.20_8-1rh.i686.rpm. and the 4.0 version of hsflinmodem.
I think it's conflicting right now and before i install the first two package, dmesg could see the modem as 'Conexant HSFi Modem', when i run Internet Configuration Wizard, it still wouldn't recognize the modem. So i had install the first one. After that i receive a conflict message, to avoid that. I try to use 'rpm -e "that rpm" ', but nothing came out or it aren't working, because after i hit enter, the cursor would just keep beeping without tell is it finished or not who would just keep beeping without return another prompt.

thanks for your answer.

Try:

rpm -e <package name without putting the .rpm on the end>

See
man rpm
