I don't :)
but that doesn't mean much. "Presario" is just compaq's name for their
line of consumer PCs. It's almost as vague as calling something a
"PC". The worst part is the shelf time of any given Presario model is
only a few months.
The modem is probably a next-to-useless winmodem.
Almost any modern motherboard will run linux fine.
BTW, has anyone gotten the binary-only lucent winmodem driver to work
with a compaq LT modem?
