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...

Thanks for the input! I believe I have a lucent chipset on the modem so will pursue that course...I was happy the day I rid myself of the extra wiring required for external modems and would like to keep it that way.

Anyone know if this is something the Linux experts might look at for future distributions...i.e. try to incorporate more internal PCI modems (winmodems) or is this an impossibility?

Again, kind thanks for the feedback!
