    So how big is it? I've seen posts with 100 lines or so before. Post the part you think is important and we'll try to help. You know the deal with winmodems in Linux, right?

    If you can get the modem working in one distro, you should be able to get some information on how to make it run in Mandriva. Maybe you just need the right driver (="module"). Of those 3 distros, can one of them run as a "liveCD"? That is, can it run from the CD without being installed to the hard drive?

    Fire one up, make sure the modem is working and then:

    Enter the command 'lspci' to "list" what's on you PCI bus. Look for your modem and make notes.

    Enter the command 'lsmod' to "list" the modules that are loaded. This is a bit tougher, but you want to see if you can identify a driver related to your modem.

    If you run the set-up program for the modem or for the internet connection, you may get some other information.
