    A xoom 5510-A modem, is this a driver ?


    Would someone possibily know the answer to this one please.
    I got a zoom 5510 A usb adsl modem for windows and linux.
    xoom states it will run in linux.

    All I can find on the CD is a folder of 4 files, one is
    Install_USB_ADSL.pax.gz

    others are:-
    Install_USB_ADSL.bom
    Install_USB_ADSL.sizes
    Install_USB_ADSL.info

    The info file gives :-
    Title USB ADSL driver
    Version 1.0.0b4
    Description
    DefaultLocation /
    DeleteWarning

    ### Package Flags

    NeedsAuthorization YES
    Required NO
    Relocatable NO
    RequiresReboot YES
    UseUserMask NO
    OverwritePermissions NO
    InstallFat NO
    #rootVolumeOnly YES



    I searched around, I got a pax thingy installed from the mandrake 9.1 cd.
    It seems pax had something to do with Posix file syspem archiver according to what a site gave for pax.

    Anyway, I got the .gz file unpacked into :-
    Install_USB_ADSL.pax

    I can't work out what to do next, and is this a linux driver or set up file in the first place.

    Could anyone offer advice please, I've searched around, probably not in the correct location or I would have founf sommat.

    Where can I get a pax unpacker ?

    Thanks in advance.

    I have never heard of pax files before. Try running "zcat Uinstall_USB_ADSL.pax.gz | file -" to see what the file command says it is.
