I would like to get on the net with Mandrake 9.2, but apparently I have a win modem. I know I need a driver but that is pretty much all I know. I have Generic softk56 PCI modem. Any one know where I can get a driver? And what to do after I get it?

Lunuxant has a Conexant List Modem Tool (download the one for Linux) ... save it to the /tmp directory when downloading

Now open a terminal window and switch to the root user (if you are not already logged in as the root user) in the terminal window using the command:

su - root

(when prompted, enter the root uses's password)....now the terminal window is the root user.

Now go to the /tmp directory:

cd /tmp

unzip/untar the listmodem_app_linux.tar.gz file with the command:

tar -xvzf listmodem_app_linux.tar.gz

Now run the listmodem.sh script with this command:

./listmodem.sh
-----------------------------
If you want help determining what driver to download, then post the results of listmodem.sh and the following commands:

uname -r

uname -p

Is your processor an AMD Althon or Pentium?

I have an AMD processor. Your post makes it sound like I am supposed to download the driver in linux. The only way I can access the net is through windows on another HD. So can I download the driver in windows and move it to linux?

yeah, just mount your windows hard drive (assuming its fat32 and hda1) in linux with the command mount -t vfat /dev/hda /mountpoint then copy the files you need over

for ntfs, replace vfat with ntfs
