I just installed Red Hat 6.1
It will not recognize my modem.  I have checked a compatibility list and my modem is not listed.  Is there any way for me to select a "generic" modem during setup???

Thank you

Hi Michaelg19,

The first thing is are you using X-Windows ie. GNOME or KDE.
1. If you are using KDE you can use kppp - a graphical tool which will help you configure your modem - Under Internet option on the menu list.

2. if you are using GNOME you can use - Dialup Configuration Tool - Under Internet option on the menu list.
