Dear Cypher,
	First of all, please use reconfigure your mail client to use
your real name. Please note the latest release of Debian is 3.0
(code-named Woody). However, there is no guarantee that your winmodem
is supported under Debian 3.0 let alone ANY current distribution or
version of Linux. Winmodems are notoriously hard to support under
Linux due to their manufacturer's unwillingness to release information
about them to the public domain. Your best bet is to check
<http://www.linmodems.org/> to see if it is possible (and how) to get
it working under Linux, or better still, buy an external serial (or
USB as long as it's not a winmoden) as they definitely work in Linux.
	If you need anymore help, please send contact
<debian-user@lists.debian.org> (-project is not a technical support
list), <http://www.debianhelp.org> or ask in #debian on

Good luck,
Andrew "Netsnipe" Lau
