I have a NTL USB modem on my pc and with FC1 i was able to install it with some messing around. It worked under bootp NOT dhcp iirc.
When I installed FC2, it totally Mashed my system up (dual boot win xp).
Now under Fedora core 2 the modem is detected as a network/system device on the hardware browser, but not undet Network device control.
If I set up CDCEther at eth0, it says device not found with both dhcp AND bootp.
During boot, my modem is detected BEFORE the networking bit starts (USB light comes on).
Had a good look around but can't seem to find an answer.
What is even more annoying is that Knoppix (with kernels 2.4 & 2.6) seems to auto detect it USING RED HAT SOFTWARE TO AUTOMATICALLY CONFIGURE IT! So there is an answer.
Any Ideas? Is it possible to in some ways take accross thje knoppix settings ( without installing knoppix of course...)
PS I aint got no ethernet or spare pci slots so dont say buy an ethernet card please.
