Ok. Just so you don't expect _too_ much, keep in mind that I don't currently
have Mandrake installed on any of my boxes.
1) Do you know for a fact which COM port this modem should be found on?
i.e. in Windows, what COM port does it show up as? *Note* I have had
problems where I had a perfectly good USR Sportster 56k that I had to
physically re-do the jumpers to disable PnP and set the COM port & IRQ.
2) If you are trying to just get on the internet w/ this machine, and not
anything fancy like masquerading (i.e. you don't have a LAN behind you), I'd
try kppp. Sometimes kppp can 'find' the modem while the setup can't. Go to
(kde)Start->Internet->Kppp and go thru the setup.
3) If you are trying to set up a gateway and the whole nine yards w/
firewalling, dial-on-demand, etc., then someone else is going to have to jump
in here, 'cuz I'm still in the middle of figuring that out myself ;)
