    Does anyone know if its possible to make a winmodem work on a linux box? I have an old Gateway PII 300 with a Creative Modem Blaster V90 ISA card. My being totally new to linux, i searched around and saw that others have said it can be done, but i cannot find the needed drivers to make this one work. Any help/advice would be much appreciated.
    PS: sorry i first said Mandrake 8 which i hand just been reading about but it is RedHat 8.

    Yes, it is possible -- but it may not be straightforward. For a very good compendium of information, try www.linmodems.org -- and good luck.

    Hope this helps.

    Hi paul nagel,

    I had the same problem trying to get a winmodem to work with Linux. In the end i gave up and bought a MultiTech external modem. Which worked straight off, out of the box!

    Kind Regards
