Modem Prob


Hi,

I'm trying to get my net connection up and running after installing Red Hat 9 and I need to connect my USB modem to a normal phone line. Does Red Hat have a driver or will I have to hunt the web for one ? (I know, why haven't I got broad band !)
(Just joined the site and can't see where all the resources are).

linmodems.org is an excellent list of modem drivers for Linux. I hope what you need is listed there.

Ok oot, ta. Actually it's since occured to me I've got to re-arrange my ISP, the package I'm using is on Windows at the moment and it probably isn't compatible with Linux. Bloody Windows !!!!
