Well i found out that the modem in my other pc works for linux but i got to reinstall linux on there sence the pc was given to me and the guy wont tell me the root password or anything. so i was wondering is there any commands or anything i need to know for installing it with this modem or should it work just fine and pick up during the install.

I dont see any reason why you would have to have to root password of the current install to format the hard drive and reinstall. If the distrobution that you use right now supports it, and you install it again it should detect the hardware, and be able to use it. Btw moved to the linux forum.

GIYF, do a search for linmodems, your distro, the modem brand/model, etc. There are tons of help and howtos. Also search some forums and give some more specific information to us to help.

A good linux forum is here and linuxquestions.org

And I think we have a linux section here btw, so if so, I will move this after I post it.
