Hi i am new to Red Hat ....... the first thing i wanted to do was install modem.....
now here is whta i did..........
Downloaded the driver from intel site
extracted the tgz file
went into extracted folder through terminal
typed :make clean
typed :make 536
typed :make install

(i do it all as root)
the readme file says that /dev/modem is now the interface to the modem....
So i go to internet configuration wizard and change modem to /dev/modem
change the flow control to none.

now i try to dial after entring username,pass,no. there is a dialtone for 1 or 2 sec..... and then keeps doing in while(1) lols
P.S: my internet works on windows

Secondly i here ppl talking about kpppd and minicom etc. as dial programs .....i havn't found them? what should i do.

now i am really getting upset.......plz help me

Problem 2) i am using Nvidia GeForce 5200 but is not being detected ... what should i do........????

the modem dials the voice of dialing is the same as that in windows which makes me sure
that modem is detected..... so this means problem is with my dialing...

I am using Internet Configuration Wizard to enter username,pass,no. and ISP name what am i missing or doing wrong to get it right.....

(I have assumed that modem is working fine on the basis of sound and beep from modem
if there is still a possibility of that being wrong plz tell me )

You are very impatient, and some people may argue that you have
posted too many times in a short time to the same thread.
I have done the same in the past (but you can also use the edit button)

I suggest you look at

and use wvdial to find out / investigate what is wrong with the dialing (or whatever)

Your thread title could be improved next time by being more specific
