Linux Serial Device Trouble

To install the PnP driver in the linux kernel, the following steps need to
be
followed:

1) copy ./linux/include/linux/pnp.h into the linux header file collection

2) make a directory /usr/src/linux/drivers/pnp
   copy ./linux/drivers/pnp/* into it.

3) alter /usr/src/linux/drivers/Makefile so that it will cause pnp/pnp.o to
be
   linked into the kernel.

Winmodems will not work on Linux (YET!). They use the systems CPU to drive the modem devices directly but Linux does not yet have the code needed to do this.

If you call USrobotics and ask them for the WinModem spec sheet you will see exactly what they consist of and how they work.

Really, you should get a "real" modem for Linux - Sorry :(
