I have redhat 9 and i cant get my dialup internet to work on it. I have gone and set up my username, pass, and phone number, but i cant even get it to connect or anything. How can i get this working? Also How can i get my printer working(I have not even bothered to try and set it up yet. I just am trying to see what it am getting into here)?

A quick froogle shoudl tell you. (does pricewatch cover modems?)

As for printing. Good question. Distros have their own systems for setting up printing.

Gimp-Print supports the Lexmark Z43 up to a certain resolution (they claim the driver for the Z42/Z43 "needs testing"). If Red Hat 9 uses CUPS for printing by default (I don''t remember if it does), installing a Gimp-Print RPM should allow the driver to be selected in whatever printer setup dialog Red Hat provides. Gimp-Print might already be installed, which means you should just have a look around the printer setup dialog in Red Hat. It should be a relatively simple matter.

The modem I have that I use in both redhat 9 and windows xp is an external serial modem. I forget the brand but I bought it at newegg.com. Works great and was only $35 I think. Any "hardware" modem will work though, but the hardware internal modems are still quite pricey, I''d say go with an exteral serial or usb hardware modem. They are much cheaper.
