So I recently reformatted my computer and I now have XP + Ubuntu 7.10 dual-boot. I did all the updating at my friend's house since he has a cable connection. I have a modem and dial-up, and I believe Ubuntu has found my modem, but I'm not sure because I have no way to connect that I know of.

REMEMBER: I CANNOT CONNECT TO THE INTERTUBES TO RUN SYNAPTIC OR THE ADD/REMOVE PANEL.

Any suggestions have to be things that I can download in a package on my XP partition and execute later. I'm completely lost here, and all I want is to get connected to my dialup on my Ubuntu Partition.

I am sufficient in linux, I know how it operates, but I'm lost in this situation. Can anyone help me?

Not familiar w/Ubuntu, but AFAIK, just b/c the firmware shows up as recognized doesn't mean drivers are compiled into the kernel or modules available. Do you have any idea what kind/brand the modem is? Is it internal PCI, external, USB, etc?

Hahaha, I just found the drivers. It's an Intel 536EP Modem. I downloaded the kppp .deb file, installed everything, and it all works perfectly.

Thanks anyway to everyone who bothered to read this thread!
