Good Day! I have successfully installed Linux 7.0 and that's as far as I've gotten. As I need my computer for a living, the following questions I needed answered 3 days ago. Help!

A.) The US Robotic modem V.90 "For Linux" didn't come with drivers and Linux doesn't pick it up. Could someone send me these drivers to and I would even pay you for this service! (What director or sub-directory would these go in? Then what do I do?)

B.) I have a Canon BJC-1000 printer but it is not listed in Linux 7.0 (Only BJC-4000 and BJC-610 and these don't work.) How do I connect this printer?

C.) Very, very important software I had for WIN 98 I need to install, if possible, in Linux 7.0. These include Adobe Photoshop 3.0; SONY Picturelite for WIN 98; Studio DV for WIN 98; and Iomega Zip software (Easy Creator) for external Iomega CD writer. Help!!!

D.) I installed Linux 7.0 onto my D: Drive (60 GB). Apparently, LILO was not configured properly and I cannot seem to run my WIN 98 from my C: Drive (2 GB Hard Drive). Only LINUX appears as a starting option. Is there an easy way to configure this so I have the option between the two at the onset?

E.) What is the best Fax you would recommend for Linux 7.0?

Thank you very, very much. I cannot tell you the extreme urgency I am in here.

Well, you are in a hurry
I'm sure you won't be able to get photoshop on linux - you can use GIMP instead ~

You'll probably need to tell us what linux distribution you are using, eg, RedHat, Slackware, Debian, Mandrake etc..

You'll probably also notice the software you've listed:
SONY Picturelite for WIN98, Studio DV for WIN98. These are telling you something, they are for WIN98 and I'd say without knowing anything that they won't run in linux. I'm pretty certain you'd be pushing the brown stuff uphill trying to find the same application built for linux.

Someone knowing a bit more will be able to help you with the printers I'm sure.

Anyway, someone else will be able to help more than I, and hopefully with good news
