Hi;
I am running Debian Linux Sarge 3.1 on a Compaq desktop. I have partitioned my hard drive so I can still have Windows XP Crying or Very sad .
I also have an HP laptop sitting next to the Compaq so I can be on the Internet with XP and IE. This permits me to have Linux up on the Compaq and the Internet on the laptop. Nice for learning since I have only had Linux for about a month.

I am having a lot of trouble getting connected to AT&T Worldnet with Linux. I have a Lucent Win-Modem which may not be supported.

I discovered the Linux-Tutorial while looking for the Linux File System and in particuler what an inode is as I was asked to use symbolic links I found all I could want about it here.

This seems to be what I am looking for so I registered.

Thank you very much for the reply. It is refreshing to see that a human has read my post and did reply. I also thank you for the web site lookup you did. I am aware of these sites and have been trying to send some Doc. but somehow I was sending "MIME" which discuss@ltmodems does not accept. I think I fixed that problem. I am waiting for a reply.

By the way I see you are from Iowa. Do you know where Titonka, Ia. is?
My family owns a farm there.

Thanks again....

Welcome, Ray! Yes, there are humans that read these posts. Trip is much better at keeping up to date than I am, but we do our best to reply to all posts as much as possible. Sometimes it is simply to say "I don't know", but we try out best.

If you run into anything that is unclear or think that this or the other feature would help you learn better, please let us know.

regards,

jimmo

Thanks free,
I have seen others refer to ispci but it does not seem to be on my Debian system Crying or Very sad. I do have scanmodem which is about the same I think. I have been communicating with the ltmodem folks and they seem satisfied with the modem data I have passed on to them. The latest is that am connecting but with NoEC (no error correction) and with my "ALLTEL" phone this is a big problem.

Confused Confused Confused
Well this is real dumb of me. I typed i as in eye not L as in listpci.
Remember dumb and dumber. I am even dumber, I have the output of this command
in my notes from when I used the command properly. I have been through so much
with this modem I can't keep my ducks in line.
