I am about to go over to Mandrake 9.1 myself but not there yet. I'll bump this post beck to the top. Someone will be along shortly to give some advice I'm sure. If you really get stuck try the Mandrake Forum I'm sure there will be someone there that will be able to help out. Cheers. :o)

There is no Linux driver for the BT Voyager 100 modem, sorry :-(

there are any possibility of have this modem work on linux?

The links provided by jazzypop are hopefully. Been on them and more many times.

I've been trying to get my frog modem on linux.

9.1 does detect the modem and even tells you what file you need.

mgmt.o < its in a compressed file.

But in linux when you extract the file it is not there.

Also when copying to the /usr/share/speedtouch folder i get "Do not have write permissions" :-(

There is a driver hack for the GlobeSpan chipset that it uses but it alters the firmware revision of the modem, you could end up with a 90 quid modem that wont work under windows or Linux if you tried it.

The only other hope it to pester the arse off BT to get a driver sorted.
