Re: Bleh! win modem on my presario 1920

I forgot to mention that about a week ago I posted a message to the Compaq
support forum asking about Linux support for this modem. However, it is
moderated and I have not seen it appear on the forum. I wonder if it got
censored out or they haven't had the time to answer it yet. Maybe since it
is a Lucent modem (I think), there are other issues involved.

BTW, the Linux laptop site is excellent. I notified the maintainer of the
presario 1920 page about the winmodem problem (he had not configured his
modem since he had LAN access) as I felt that it would be of interest to
anyone thinking of installing linux on their 1920.
