I have copied the folder from the floppy drive which contains the modem driver to the desktop. The folder is named cxacru. If I right click on the folder I use the option under Actions 'open terminal here'

First I type ./configure I then get no such file or directory
Then I type make I get ' ' ' No such rule 'module2' , needed by 'clean' . stop

make install I get no rule to make 'install' stop

I'm totally lost !!!
