This website: Click Here has some information on your modem.. there are files called source files that can be compiled into modem drivers.
This is where linux gets nitty-gritty and is kinda like Organic Chemistry in college.
If you are able to understand and compile your own software from source code (it's really not as bad as it sounds!) then you usually become a linux junkie because doing so opens up a HUGE amount of FREE software that you can add to your system.
The above drivers are for Redhat and may not be compatible with DSL.. RedHat may already have those drivers included in their most recent distribution.
I am not sure how to install the appropriate additional programs to compile source code in DSL. I have mostly used RPM based distributions (RedHat, Mandrake, SuSE, Peanut) but I really like the Debian based distros like DSL.
If anyone knows what programs need to be installed into DSL to compile source code, please post! (I know you need GCC, make, etc.. but I would be guessing)
