    Perhaps some details like WHAT modem you use would be helpful... What kernel, what particular RHL you use (version number) and in what environment you're having trouble ( a shell? Which shell? What dialup program? X-Win?)

    You have two problems there

    not knowing anything about Linux, and the windmodem

    the Lucent windmodems are sometimes supported by an "ltmodem" driver. However, its not always included with a distro.

    The easiest way around a winmodem is always to go out and buy a hardware external modem. Sorted for all OS's.
