i believe it is a hardware modem as the big chip(rockwell) says
RCVDL56ACF/SP with ACF being for hardware modems

i have installed RH5 on the above machine but am unable to get the modem to respond at all
i have kind of hit a brick wall i am unsure if how to configure my serial ports and the howtos assume a knowledge i don't have, what i have found is that when i run dmesg it tells me something to the effect that i have a serial driver with no serial options enabled, i don't know what this means.
I also can't test my modem by typing the
echo "ATDT***-****/n" >/dev/cua1(ihave tried 0-3 and got no response)
the other thing is using the dmesg command i can't find any mention of ppp and according to the book I need to recompile the kernel to do this, but again i have no idea how to do this
I am using redhat 5 because it is small enough to fit onto my machine all other versions i have are apparently too big RH 7.1,Mdk 8./,9
I really only want the machine to be able to do a web browsing, email etc
I am trying to this on a budget of nothing and my only means of transferring data is floppy or CD and no i am not going to down load 80 slackware floppies, i don't have a CD burner so all file suggested for me to download will need to be floppy sized.
>thanks for any help you can give
sorry its so long but I am trying to put in all the info i can think of that will be useful
