I am still floundering around ! May I recap the saga to date ?
1. My system has a Lucent Winmodem for which I have a Linux driver which
worked with Slackware, so I tried to install it with Ubuntu, and ran
into problems that I haven't yet solved.
2. To avoid the problems, I bought an external modem - USB, because my
system has no serial or parallel ports. Unfortunately, the new modem
also turned out to be a software modem, so I got its Linux driver, but
haven't been able to install that either.
3. I concluded it was "chicken and egg". I wasn't going to be able to
install either of the drivers until I had my system upgraded to current
level, and I wasn't going to be able to upgrade until......
4. To break the circle, I bought another USB modem, this time one listed
in the Knowledge Base at http://start.at/modem as a real hardware modem
(OK with Linux) (MultiTech MT5634ZBA-USB). Now, the device manager sees
it, but there is nothing in the /dev directory, which I can use to
How do I get Ubuntu to see it ?
