More Linux modem stuff - perhaps WVDIAL is a step in the solution.
And certainly seems to be a help, too.

So, I'm trying to get Linux running on my IBM Thinkpad laptop.  It's going fairly well so far. But I've run into a snag: Red Hat doesn't automagically detect and config the internal modem. However, some hunting around as helped me find some helpful links:

So far, I've figured out that my modem is a Lucent Microelectronics WinModem 56k (rev1).  So, might be helpful (although it is dated 2001!). appears to be a wealth of reference material. Also Red Hat 6.2, Kernel 2.2.14-5.0 might be the solution to all my problems (its an RPM for Lucent modems...).

However, it is possible I might need to *buy* an external, proper modem. Well, I guess I've learnt something :)
