Hi everyone...I decided to take the plunge and try out Linux...very cool but I'm having difficulty installing a generic (Soft56k) PCI modem. I tried out Mandrake 9, Red hat 7.1, Lycoris hoping one of them might detect the modem...no go. Any suggestions (other than purchasing a new modem)? Hence I'm back to using Windows yet again...

Howdy, dEdE

I know you don't want to purchase another modem, but take a look at this webpage for the scoop on WinModems vs Linux. Even if you should return to Windows, you'd probably be ahead to get a good external modem in place, and if you should do that, you'll most likely have great success with it under Linux. I've found that the US Robotics and Zoom externals work very well with Linux. I'm currently using the Zoom 3049 ext that I found for about $70 at the local computer store.

Perhaps someone else here will have more input. Anyway, good luck whichever route you take... smile.gif
