Install Agere AC'97 Modem on IBM R40 in Fedora Core 1?
 
I installed Fedora Core 1 on my IBM R40 without a hitch. Dual boot with Windows XP Pro.

I am a newbie to linux and have searched around for answers. I understand the SLMDM drivers are the ones to use but as I am not completely converse in the command line concept I have a problem.

Is there anyone who has an extremely simple line by line, step by step instruction set of how to install, configure and get this modem to work ?

The best I get is the error 2 or error 7 messages.

Is there some way of having the system find modems on the computer as in windows (add hardware)???

I find it disheartening that such a new version of RedHat would not be more up to date on its modems as the IBM thinkpad's are very popular and this particular modem has been used for years.

Thanks
