: I've read some postings, indicating that others have
: had success with Linux and newly acquired x2 modems.
: It wasn't clear if these were x2 enabled because of
: software upgrades or not.
: My situation is that I have a 33.6k modem, and have
: purchased the upgrade, which has to be run in a DOS
: Windows environment. I have a RedHat Linux partition,
: and the OS on it, and want to know with some sense of
: security that I can upgrade in the DOS/Win partition,
: and not have this negatively affect the Linux install.
: Also, I'd like to know if the upgrade applies to the
: Linux OS.
Perhaps you're using some sort of Sportster with voice capabilities. Some
of them are software upgradable. The regular Sportsters (non-winmodem)
are upgraded by swapping a socketed chip.
