Have friends's HP Pavillion computer, about 4 years old. I have wiped Windows off of computer and installed Debian Sarge Desktop Linux. Works fine from my LAN, unfortunately at her home she only has dialup. Computer has Contentat Winmodem. I gave up on that and bought and installed SmartLink PCI 56k Modem. Installed Debian package sl-modem-daemon. Gives error message about not being able to locate module snd-intel8xOm with Linux 2.4 kernel. Looks like I may need to recompile kernel with sound card stuff, and who knows what else to get this to work. Need somebody to walk me thru step by step so I can give this computer back to my friend.
Working dialup via modem on HP Pavillion computer.
