    Mandrake 9.1


    I installed Mandrake 9.1 on my celeron 366@550 (5.5x100) 256mb SDRAM.
    I installed the minimum packages, and i must have overlooked the modem setup.

    when the install finished, i went in search of kppp, but it wasn't there. I eventualy installed it (my first rpm installation!). When i set it up, it told me there's no modem.
    how do i install one?

    thanks in advance

    What kind of modem do you have? Sounds like it might be a winmodem.

    I have a D-link dfm-560E serial port modem
    I think it's powered by a reockwell chipset.
    do i have to plug it in when linux is loading - Checking for new hardware ?

    thanks

    Yes your modem needs to be plugged in before booting linux. Your modem will be /dev/ttySX where X = the serial port your modem is connected to, ie those are the com ports in windows.

    Note, however, that the ttyS devices in Linux are zero-based, ie. COM1 in DOS is /dev/ttyS0 in Linux.
