    Can someone walk me through the setup for a modem on my
    Thinkpad 365XD? The modem is a new 56 K V.90 PCMCIA fax/modem with card and cable.

    Hi Kandy, welcome to TSG.

    What operating system are you running?

    Currently it has Win98. I also have Win98SE if that would be better.

    When it's plugged in (before the computer is turned on) and you start the computer, does windows recognize new hardware?

    Sorry I did not make myself clear. I need to start from scratch. Take the card out of the box, then what?

    Then plug it into the PCMCIA slot on the side of the computer.....then turn the computer on. When windows loads completely, does it find the new hardware and start requesting drivers for it?
