I've just gotten Red Hat 6.1 up and running on my 3800. The ESS
Maestro sound supposedly isn't supported until kernel 2.2.14, I
upgraded my kernel yesterday but still haven't been able to get
things working properly. I get a lot of static through the speakers
when I'm in GMOME and a little when I'm in KDE. I don't know if it's
a video or a sound problem, but I'm working on it.
As for the modem, everything I've read says that Linux and winmodems
don't work together at all. It has to do with the fact that
winmodems let Windows do some of the processing for them with
propiotary hardware. If this info is out of date or just wrong I'm
sure that someone will let us know.
