installing/finding DRIVERS for laptop modem/soundcard

im using MEPIS linux on my laptop, and i need to do what the title of this thread suggests.

im not a complete linux newbie, but still not too good at remembering console commands. so yeah, if someone could guide me through getting those 2 bits of hardware sorted i would be grateful.

im not sure what model the hardware is, but the laptop is a toshiba satellite 3000 uses kde.

cheers and just ask me to paste any console output you need to know to help me

Goto to and see if your modem is listed, you may also try searching google for "PCMCIA modem" + Linux

Anyways, let me tell 99% your modem is not going to work on Linux, reason you can find on

Btw. in case you are desperate for running the modem try out mandriva & Redhat H/w compatiblity list and see if your modem is listed.

>>im not sure what model the hardware is, but the laptop is a toshiba satellite
>>3000 uses kde

Then find it out from manufacturer(toshiba), it aint gonna help this way
