    Well, what I wanna do is turn this hunk of junk into my file server and "DIAL-ON-DEMAND" internet gateway. Well, my 56K modem I got is a WinModem and I need a good inexpensive PCI 56K modem that I can get that'll work in Linux. This server is gonna be on 24/7 and dialed on the internet 24/7. If it disconnects, it'll reconnect automatically.

    Just about any modem out there now will be seen by Linux. I have Red Hat 7.3 running on a Dell Opti GX1 500hz PC, and it found everything just fine. You might want to check the makers web site, or www.google.com/linux for drivers for Linux. I keep switching between Mandrake and Linux. So many choices. [​IMG]

    I looked at the compatibility list for Linux and it didn't have my Creative Labs PCI modem listed.
