- Hey Man,
I also bought a similar configuration from dell. In windows check
and see if the modem is a LT winmodem. If that's correct then you
are in luck. (Some people say that the combo card does not always
use the Lucent winmodem chip) Goto this site:
http://walbran.org/sean/linux/stodolsk/ to get the drivers. Install
the sppropriate one for you kernel. You'll be up and running in no
I did it and my modem is functioning perfectly. My only problem not
is finding a ISP that allows me to log in with Linux. It's no
surprise that MSN doesn't.
Hope this helps.

- Linux/Dell Users:
So if I understand things correctly:
The combinational modem-ethernet which can be "built in" to the i8000
(not a PCMCIA type device), is a Lucent based "winmodem", and an
ethernet card predicated on a 3com chipset?
Absent the most obvious linmodem problems, I understand the lucent
driver works, I havent tested it yet, as I updating my kernel today
in order to support it.
Does the ethernet portion of this card get recognized and "driven"
will for most of you?
