    most usb modems work similar to winmodems in that they require a special driver to work, and a REALLY special driver to work in linux. to be sure it will work, you need either a controller-based internal modem, or an external modem with the serial or parallel connection. US robotics, 3 com, etc. make these.

    If memory serves correctly, I believe that I have seen a usb modem work on rh 8.something, but i'm not sure which modem it was. try the manufacturer's website for information on it.

    hope this helps.

    make sure you have your usbd running as well. you might want to make sure that your kernel is compiled correctly.
