Pilots for winmodems are not very numerous, and have to be fit to the
kernel. So you might find a pilot, and have to downgrade to the great
great grand-father of your actual kernel to make it function more or
less bad ;)
That's for my research with a HP laptop 3 or 4 years old.
Another way is to by a PCMCIA card, among the few you'll be sure, after
a fast research, that it will be recognised (but I don't have experience
with it). The last way (what I do) is to connect through a gateway on a
LAN with one cable.
Then I configure with ipmasq on the gateway and 'route add default
gateway' on the client. (and add the needed IP on the /etc/resolv.conf).
Hum. I have a 56k connexion only. Some connexions like DHCP better,
although it is mostly fit for many computers.
Another way is connect with an external serial modem/or router if large
band connexion, if your machine has a serial port/whatever else can go,
I don't know anything about large band, on it (mine on 56k does not
have a serial output :/)
Best greetings, Joyce Markoll.
