Yes it is coming quite clear now. The update is my only path. This
minutes Google search gives me hope for getting the dialup going. I
had a plan to sidestep this winmodem issue as well, if necessary-I
have a PC card modem. Strangely enough, when I was installing Debian
for the first time, I had to disable PCMCIA support. The challenges
never end! Thanks again for your comments.
It's been my experience that PCMCIA modems are generally real modems,
not win-modems. However, I don't have a great deal of experience with
setting them up, especially after the inital install. But I think all
you need is the pcmcia package. Then pppconfig should find the modem.
