    Modem setup


    Now I know I dealing with stone age technology here, but I've recently set up a new dial up modem on the dual boot PC and have managed to connect to the net through Windows. However, I can't seem to set it up in Slackware (I was trying this through KDE if it makes any difference).

    How do I set it up in Linux and is the fact that there is no Linux driver available for it a problem? I ask this because I got my external HD running in Slackware without a driver.
