I have a PCI modem, Intel 539EP V.92. Additionaly, I have Red Hat 8.0 set up on my computer. Under Windows the modem is insalled in slot com4. I can't figure out how to set up my modem with the Linux OS to get it working. I am aware of how PCI modems are typically nothing more than WinModems that run off of software rather than being a true hardware device. However, I am also aware of existing drivers out that are considered to be LinModems. I have downloaded the relative driver, but I am not sure how to compile it correctly. The file's readme text doesn't help me too much since it uses jargon that I am not yet familiar with. I have also tried the Linmodem.org website for enlightenment, but to no avail. Could some one please help me with this problem explained in Winman terms?
Thank you in advance,
