Re: Modem does not work
Owch... looks like you have a win-modem. In order to save on hardware costs a lot of modem manufacturers off load the data compression onto the cpu rather than including special hardware for the tasks. the problem is that this sort of software only runs under windows. (AFAIK) In order to spot a modem which will work with Linux, look for on that claims to support DOS. Usally, these will be ISA if internal, or just about any external modem will work.

I have bought (two day ago) a modem, it says (in the windows software)
that it is a "Motorols SM56 PCI, Speakerphone Modem" and it is on
I already managed to put it working under "MicroMole" ("MicroDull"
(soft!?) in portuguese), but in Linux...
I already try to use minicom, pon, seyon, kppp, ... but no luck :(
The /proc/pci says
PCI devices found:
Bus 0, device 0, function 0:
Host bridge: Intel 440BX - 82443BX Host (rev 3).
Medium devsel. Master Capable. Latency=64.

Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xe5000000 [0xe5000000].
Its seems that it does not recognise de modem "Motorola Unknown
device" and that it shares the same irq with the graphics card
Can you help me? Thanks.
