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...

they are already doing something for winmodems for linux..but being that
every winmodem practically has different set of driver information and cant use basic configuration setup as a hardware non-windmodem type...its hard to put every type of winmodem configuration into a linux distro...
but they have been working on the for some time now....i havent heard
anything lately about the subject..so i dont know exactly how far along
this subject is or if it is even continuing....

good luck
