Exclamation Modem Issue

Hi to everybody!

Being a newbie to Linux, I'd like to ask for an assistance.
I've just got to know that my internal modem (Lucent Win Modem in Dell Dimension 8100) is incompatible with Red Hat Linux (7.1), and so I can't make any Internet connections,

So, my request is to advise me about ANY possible workaround in order to start using Internet.

I would appreciate your replies.

first there are some winmodems that work in linux.. have a look at , yours might work or have a driver for it..
a workaround if it doesn't work would be... buy a new hardware modem or external modem...

lucent is one of the few winmodem vendors who have made any effort to supply support to the linux community - there's a good winmodem driver out there for two major lucent chipsets - you can run an lspci --v to find out what chipset your modem has.
