    "linmodem" is a generic word for a software modem that has some kind
    of driver support available under linux.

    Maybe you are not a native english speaker? Incorrect use of "the"
    would explain the unparsability. If you had written

    I have ^a^ linmodem driver on ^my^ computer ..

    that would have pd correctly.
     

    Follow the instructions on the site you got it from.
     


    What do you mean by "listed as"? What you have given is the name of an
    rpm package file. Is it or is it not that?
     

    If it IS that filename, then you install it using rpm, as for all rpm
    packages. But it's clearly a lucent driver for a very specific kernel.
    Do you have that kernel?

    I copied a modem driver into a directory on my Linux mandrake 9.1

    Well then check the README or whatever docs came with the driver and
    install it using 'rpm' (rpm -ihv package.rpm) as root.

    But check the docs before installing!

    Thank you michael. I have been down with flu and unable to make long
    winded speeches!

    He probably wants to load the driver and make ttyS14 or whatever it is
    they say to do.

    Ops and I was starting to wonder...
     

    Yep, and perhaps edit /etc/modules.conf && depmod -a, if the rpm
    doesn't take care of it. But then this should be mentioned in
    the docs, the OP should have.

    Warm regards
