US Robotics modem
Have a new USR modem for kppp. The modem is listed under hardware in Confiqure your computer and has Linux compatible on the box.
Launch a terminal session.
Create a symbolic link for the modem using following commands:
cd/dev <enter> I get "Command unknown"
rm modem <enter>
ln-s ttySX <enter>
Type Minicom <enter> start Minicom
The modem initializes under Minicom, type AT <enter>
I get stoppd after "command unknown"
Tried this with root and not root. I phoned USR, they have no time for me. Tried the kppp configure, stops at initialize.

Hmmm, strange instructions! Try
cd /dev (notice the space)
rm modem (remove the file called 'modem')
ln -s ttySX (I don't usually use this command, so suggest you type man ls and read up to check. It should maybe read ln -s tty SX or all the other possible combinations - detective work needed!).
./Minicom (assuming that this is an executable)
./AT (ditto - see above)
The commands they have supplied won't work as they've left spaces out etc. Customer support for Linux is usually poor or non-existent
Before you do any of this type ls -al in each directory to list files/ other
directories. You want to check that things are where you think before running commands.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
