Installation of linuxant winmodem, flash plugin

Dear all,

I have spent considerable amounts of time trying to install the above. For the winmodem, I am using the linuxant's beta drivers on my Mandrake 9.2, kernel version 2.4.22-21mdk. When I try to do make install, it always ends with an error that the source directory is invalid. I have tried editing the common.mak file, but it does not work. Any specific instructions?

As for the Flash plug-in, each time I run the script it tells me that it is installed, and to restart the session to effect the changes. However the plugin is missing each time I restart the session. What is the reason for the missing plugin? Thanks!

The winmodems are kind of hit and miss,I've gotten some to work and some not. As for the flash plugin , if you are using mozilla, open the browser and click on help and then about plugins,there should be a list of all the installed plugins,if your flash plugin is there then you need to make a sym link to your plugins folder. hope this helps.
