Internet Connection with dual operating systems.
 
Hai,

I have two operating systems on my computer-Windows 2000 and Redhat Linux 8.

I am able to connect to internet with an internal modem in windows 2000.
But i do not know how to get it done in linux.Also i checked the directory
/dev.There was no entry of that of modem.What shall i do now?

Thanks in advance,

Sherlock.

You have to start by gathering the manufacturer and model of the internal modem. Boot into windows and use the device manager to find out, then post back.

I am having the same problem there are three possibilities:

1) You have a "winmodem" which is very very hard to get to work in linux go to http://www.linmodem.org/ for some information

2) im just a noob and have no clue what im talking about :-)

and 3) you have an internal HARDWARE modem (bless ur little heart lol). If this is the case (If ur modem is ISA this is likely....PCI not so likely) but either way find out which COM port your modem is using in windows device manager and set your linux distro to use the modem on /dev/ttyS? where the ? is the COM port number

have fun

to clarify (and save some confusion):

windows com ports start numbering at "Com1"
Linux 'com' ports start at number at 0

so, what ever the com port you modem is set to in windows, subtract 1 from it.

for example:

COM1 = /dev/ttyS0
COM2 = /dev/ttyS1
COM3 = /dev/ttyS2
