good evening gents.
the name is jonathan. 14 years of age, and a not to shabby linux user for my age, but due to my lack of experience, i still have some problems
i use an asus jumper free board w/a pentium III coppermine proccessor, and a rockwell hcf dailup modem *GASP*.
i need to get my modem running, so i can download my x11, and my desktop interfaces, but the "emerge hcfpcimodem" command tries to go to the internet to download the modem drivers, and merge them, but this goes nowhere, because the modem doesn't work (because it needs the drivers first, which results in a failure), sooooooooooooo... i downloaded the drivers manually into the folder /tmp. How do i get emerge to use the driver i downloaded, it's the same file, from the same site, just downloaded from a different computer, and put onto the linux box's hard drive via floppy.
some help would be greatley appreciated
hcfpcimodem 1.10-r2 & gentoo-sources 2.6.18-r4
