    what you need is the Linux version of the modem drivers that you are using in Windows (the Com3 bit is a software version of a Com port, and needs to be replicated in Linux).

    So, goto :- http://www.heby.de/ltmodem

    Follow the links for Fedora and download the driver that has the same numbers in it as your Kernel (type uname -r in a terminal window to find that out). Then install the driver (rpm -ihv filename.rpm , where the filename.rpm is replaced by the one you downloaded.

    This will then create a device (akin to a Com3) called something like /dev/ttyLT0 and make a symbolic to this called /dev/modem . You can use either of these in your dialer.

    have fun and welcome to the world of linmodems.

    you could try the Debian drver, I honestly don'y know if iy will work. As to the links. What you are being presented with is a list of folders with driver files in them. Search these folders for a file with the correct kernel number in its name (eg. the file called "ltmodem-2.6.8-1-686_8.31a8_i386.deb" is for the kernel 2.6.8-1-686, get the idea). So look in the folders (links) for the correct file, download it and install it, and with a bit of luck it will work, but no guarantees.
