The name of the rpm is hcfpcimodem-1.01lnxt04082400full-1.i386.rpm, I just happen to have the one limited my modem speed to 14,000 baud...... Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated...... Thanks again folks...

    download and install all those dependencies you get in the error messages. if you're having trouble doing this, just post the error message you get from trying to install the modem rpm file.

    no, you've gotta download the rpms (or whatever file format you want) of those dependencies (such as gcc, et.c) and install them.
    Code:
    rpm -i filename.rpm
    will install an rpm. once you have all those installed, try installing the modem driver. you can post the error messages you get here for interpretation of what packages you need. you can also use a package manager that resolves these kinds of dependencies.

    removal of files after install?

    Oh, Sether, helper of ignorant..... Thanks if you can answer this.....

    Once I install these pkgs. have the files been moved into the primary OS folder so that I can now delete these unzipped folders? And I do the same with the othere pkgs. correct?

    P.S. This is actually sinking in! ROFL Thanks so far Sether.....

    if you're refering to the rpm files or any other files or directories you downloaded to your home directory and installed, then yes, you can delete them.
