I have successfully set up my computer for dual boot, with windowsXP and Fedora8. My DSL modem is from 2Wire, model 1000. Which options/ and How precisely can I set this up. The web infor from 2Wire was sorely lacking, and as they said, they really do not know how to support Linux.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
My problem turned out to be a bad Realtec NIC card, connecting to the modem.
Fixed now. Fedora recognized the card, installed the driver, and automatically connected to the modem, all when I turned it on, and Fedora was booting. When it finished, I saw a connection light on the modem, and Firefox came up connected and on the Fedora home page.
WOW! That was simple.
Root problem was edge card connector not making reliable contact.
