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...

see if it uses a lucent chipset on the modem
if so you can read up on how to configure the
modem here Linmodem help, you can also read more up about your situation here
Linmodem website

But in most cases it is alot easier to just get another modem
that is hardware controlled and NOT a winmodem
thats my 2 cents
