Question Hayes compatible modem???

What the hell is a Hayes compatible modem? Why cant i just use mine? I just installed Red Hat 9.0 yesterday (first timer) and then realized it doesnt detect my modem! What a bloody piece of crap. where can i get a "Hayes compatible modem? Are they pricey? I hate Bill gates but im beginning to reconsider my switch to Linux. NOTHING works and I cant run anything.

If you have a winmodem check out to see if yours is actually compatible. Just might take a little more work to get it going.

Hayes compatible modem, they were actually big back in the days of making external modems from what I remember. No need really to go searching for one.
