I've only tried getting a dial-up modem working once but when I went through all the installing the driver carry on it created a new device in /dev/ with a name that stood out a mile from the normal ttyS 's , perhaps whatever dialer or whatever you're using is looking at the wrong device, that's about all I know

I wondered if maybe something somple like that but haven't looked yet.See I had a lucent modem in the box which I got the driver for and got online fine.Now trying to get this other modem setup so first thing I did was go into mandrake control panel and removed the driver which came as a rpm for the lucent.Assuming that was all that was needed to stop it from using the lucent or looking for it being it wasn't supported by the system.Maybe simply taking out the driver isn't enough to have it look for a new modem.Is there a way to clear my system of any signs of the lucent so its forced to find this new modem. Thank You
