Linux Step By Steps


Friend of mine has a Toshiba laptop with a built in Modem (WinModem) he was using a PCMCIA modem but found a 'LinModem' driver at he above link and got it to work. Apparently it's for Lucent Winmodems only, but in case there's anyone interested I thought I'd pass the info along.

My name is Federico Voges from Argentina :)

I own a Compaq Presario 1200, it comes with an integrated modem (Lucent winmodem). After a few tests, I made it work with COL 2.4 using the drivers from ( The key here is that the drivers need a non-smp kernel. So you must recompile the kernel without SMP, you must recompile the pcmcia tools also.

PS: Along with the support section of Caldera your site is the best place to find info about COL. Keep up the good work!!!
