Installing a modem in Linux
I was trying to install my external modem for Linux an just got it! This is how I did it:
- open the terminal
- type 'su'
- type 'the passwd'
- cd to /dev
- type 'ln -s ttyS# modem' (the # represents the port number)
to see if the modem installed properly, type 'ls -la |grep modem' and you should see an entry like 'modem -> ttyS#'
- after all of that, just fire-up the dailup config tool
