I am checking out Unix and Linux in particular on my 1993 486.
I recently got a SupraExpress288iPNP modem and after trying to
get it work for the last 3 days, I have come for help.
This is the problem as I see it -
The modem requires a driver to be loaded at boot time in DOS
for it to be used with my old non-PNP BIOS (legacy as they
refer to it). There doesn't seem to be a corresponding driver
I set up the modem IRQ and COM port in Linux
and tried Minicom. Minicom can dial the number given and the remote
end answers and all thenoise starts. However, Minicom never
achieves the connection.
So, I seek yor input, what's up here? Is my Linux setup off,
or is my suspicion of the legacy driver correct? Any ideas
on how to get around this?
I am using Slackare 3.0 and installed the 1.2.13 kernel.
Thanks for any help
