    modem

    If its a dial up modem open KPPP (application enbeded in knoppix)

    Add account! Type in UN/PASS, your ISP connection phone number and ISP name.

    Then set-up modem, you need to input the name of the modem and the port. The COM3 port is on...... cant remember.... look through the www.knoppix.net/forums itll be on there some where.

    If it cant be connected using the COM3 port itll be a winmodem wich rewuires you to download some software and drivers, theres also some help on that in the www.knoppix.net/forums.

    You may have to install the knoppix live CD to harddrive if its a winmodem.

    Im not an expert or even an intermediate user!!!

    There just the steps I took!

    It sounds like you may have a winmodem, which can be an extreme pain to get working with linux unless you know what you're doinjg. And even then, it might not be worth the time.

    Give it a shot, and if you can't get your modem to work, try this: go to ebay and type in "linux modem" or "hardware modem". A hardware modem does not require drivers, and will therefore work with any system, mac, linux, windows . . . And they are much easier to set up than winmodems.

    I got mine for about $15 including S&H.
