I have an Acer 202t ltop with Xandros installed.The modem is a lucent
tech AMR and will not work.Have tried the drivers in Xandros but no joy.
Have the driver on disk for installing in WME.Can i install this driver?if so how?Where can I get the linux driver if the ME one is no good.The drivers I have found so far are not compatible with AMR.

Try downloading this:
http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz

Open up a command window and run:
gunzip scanModem.gz
sh scanModem

Post the contents of the first .txt file here and we'll help you get your drivers :-)

Cheers

To get the file from a Floppy>
mount /dev/fd0 /mnt/floppy
cp /mnt/floppy/scanModem.gz ~/
cd ~/

Then follow the steps to un-gzip it and run it :-)

Then:
cp scanmodem.txt /mnt/floppy
umount /mnt/floppy

Be root as you do all this :-)

the chipset and/or its drivers have been identified.

That's because the OS's use different Drivers from Windows (Go figure) ;-)

Basically, its said that it cant pick out the modem coz it uses the AMR slot on your mobo:
A modem was not detected among the above PCI devices.
This indicates that the modem, if present has a non-standard or ISA bridge.
Please follow the directions in ModemData.txt.2 for identifying the modem properties
when booting under Microsoft Windows. Also access any documentation sources
on yourchipset. Guidance can only be provided AFTER
the chipset and/or its drivers have been identified.

So... Follow the ModemData.txt.2 file for instructions... If you _really_ get stuck identifying the chipset type, post back with the contents of File 2.

Cheers

Thanks for yr help I think I will tell Gates he is 1 up and put a minimal windows os on and a dual boot.I will also be able to identify the modem then also.

The Lucent Win Modem LT has a driver for Linux which works well. I presume you have tried it?
