Epox 8RD3A+ - No Sound, Lucent Winmodem, GE Force 5200 HELP!!

Well, at this point I am sick of restarting my PC every 5 minutes so I can logon to XP to use the net to find yet another page of how to install a driver which does not work.


My System is:
Epox 8RD3A+ Motherboard (which has onboard audio CMedia AC 97) with 512mb, GE Force FX 5200 Card (256mb on board) & Lucent Winmodem

I have installed Mandrake 10.0 Official Download Edition and have managed to install the core (something like that, I did not write it all down).

I am running KDE 3.2

I have not been able to install my modem, I have no sound and am not sure if I have my graphics card working properly.

Question 1: Modem

So far with the modem I have followed the instructions at:

topic=13773 on mandrake users

Unfortunately I do not know what KPPP, if I have it installed or how to install it. Can anybody help.

Question 2: Motherboard
Which driver do I install from the nvidia site is it the Linux driver or the Linux AMD64 driver?

If I am to install the Linux driver which one do I pick out of the 10 or so, is it the NVIDIA_nforce-1.0-0261.tar.gz???

Question 3: Graphics Card.
Here I have found so many drivers and ways to install, any ideas on which one is the correct way.

Is it

topic=4567 on mandrake users site
nvidiainst.html o mandrake help


I have asked a few questions here already and have been pointed to a couple of sites, but when I follow the instructions I just get driver not supported or errors.

Q1:For ltmodem, you can try this:

Read the README in the package, there are instructions inside. Make sure that you have the kernel headers or kernel source installed in your MDK.

Do a lspci to see if mdk has detected the cmedia card/chip. If it is, try to unmute the master volume and pcm volume in aumix or alsamixer, i think kde has an sound utility for this purpose too, i cannot tell now as I am not using kde.

Q3:get the nvidia driver from their web site:

As usual , go through the README before you start, it's a pretty straight forward installer. Need to change some setting at the XF86Config.
