USR Modem Crashes Suse 9


Just recently when using kinternet to dial my Suse 9 machine completely freezes. I also tried wvdial in the command window which did the same thing. The modem works fine on WinXp. Recently I installed a SCSI card which is the only major change in the machine, but I tried taking it out but still have the same problem. I am pretty new at Linux and would appreciate any advice.

okay...

when you say completely freezes.. can you not even ctrl + alt + F2 into a seperate console ?

AND where did you get the driver ?
is there an update ?

without any error messages, the only advice i can give, it upgrade your kernel.
