    It is compatiable to DSL or Cable. It is high speed. I have 2 modems. 1 for up-load and 1 for download. There are now drivers for linux. Can you tell me how I can connect through mandrake 10.1?

    Well, this is a little tought, as we are not encyclopedias with vast knowlege of every obscure modem and ISP. Best bet is to install the driver and then try a connection program such as kppp or summin
