You've got a Connexant? You're in the clear! Head on over to Linuxant! Trust me! You don't need any of that bull, just go to Linuxant and read the simple guide they have. I did, and me and my winmodem we're busy posting on this message board minutes later.

Best of luck.

Theres nothing wrong with being a newbie, so long as you're willing to learn and experiment.

Best of luck to you in all your future Linux projects!
