I purchased Mandrake-Linux 10.1 & installed OK, but it did
not recognize my modem and input a driver, so I went to to download scanModem. I used it to scan my modem (US Robotics 5610)and it produced ModemData.txt =
5,366 I was able to read it, I didn't understand it, so I
tried to record it to a floppy disc with, mcopy modemdata.txt a: eventhough it appeared to save,it didn't.
I wanted to send it to you for help, but was unable. I also
have a USB memory stick but, don't know how to access it.
Please Help, Thanks.....Ken

Very sorry but I am practically an idiot when it comes to Linux....
There are many good support arenas for Linux OS....

I can tell you - the easiest/surest way to use modem with Linux is to get one that is external with standard serial port - it just hooks up to PC COM port and requires no special drivers....

Aloha! Richard.
