Having struggled to get my Linux OSs on line with
the Winmodem on the Gateway 500 , DLing drivers
from Intel and finding I had to install them on
the CLI, I'm a bit of a newbie and gave up on it
and got an External modem, a Genius GM56EX.
Bingo! Online no probs at all, and youve got all
the sounds, you get used to to dial out , usefull
if someones planted a dialler on your machine,
dialling out to a premium No! etc. and as you say
the lights show you what's goin on. Externals
rule OK, I say. Mekon.
