I have a hard drive selector on my pc currently and a slot open so id thought id try linux. I was was thinking of which version .... im basing that on preveuse post but i was wondering if any one out there had the same modem as me and has had conflicts with linux.

Thanks alot.

well basically, as cyrez said, yeah it's down to that (having a winmodem or not).

Generally if it's external (uses serial) it shouldn't be a problem. I don't recomment USB modems though.
Same as Cards...Anything on a laptop, using PCI or ISA hat a big chance of being a winmodem.

I have an external 56k USR that works a treat
MY original modem was internal PCI... => wuz a winmodem.

As a last resort (before trial 'n error ) try looking for supports on various linux sites...see If any support your modem.

Wrong, some winmodems have drivers for linux. Their a bitch to program but some hardcore people who are broke want to make their shit work on any platform. Also some creators also make drivers for linux for their winmodems after a while.

Damn you people, there is a *nix forum. Post in there, gizmo, move this for me. Well you see that is a winmode, and US Robotics is one of the mega bitches. There are linux websites with drivers for them, YET... No garuntee. I don't remember the website... http://www.linmodem.org or something like that. Search it up, winmodem drivers for linux etc. I feel your pain bro...
