Been to that site-it's how I got on to the subject.

Modem is conexant HCF Vendor ID 127a, BUT they do drivers for it at $14.95. Seems hardware modem would sort prob. once and for all.

By the way: was your thread which allowed me to do a successful ISO burn of Mandrake.'spect you see I've been passing it on

Much thanks

These drivers may work, I can remember replying to a thread about burning iso's but I have a memory like a sieve

No problem, If you do require assistance you can either contact me via the contact button or post a thread here, I will keep an eye out for it, If you decide to buy another modem ensure it is linux compatible, If you wish to use it for linux, Usually the cheaper the modem the less chance of it working with linux
