fine except that when i try to setup a dialup connection it keeps
saying modem not detected even though the modem is listed in the device
manager window. So the modem apparently was detected during
installation. I tried executing the pppconfig command from a terminal
window. I got the message "must be logged in as root" so i issued the su
command. It asked for the root password which i gave, but got the
message authentication failure, so i issued the su command followed by
my user name. It asked for my password again which worked. I tried the
pppconfig command again but it said bad command. Any help would be
appreciated as i would like to spend as little time as possible in windows
What you should do first is download the modem driver, then attempt to configure it.
