o.k. it's a bit quiet round here today so post the stupidest reply from ANY CS dept you've ever had. For me from binatone:

Dear Sir,

The Linux drivers are for use with versions of Linux at least two years old they do not seem to work with newer versions.

It's my understanding that the answer is correct, though a little vague.

I was under the impression that the drivers would only work on Redhat systems (and related platforms) and with the first generation model of the modem.

IE, generation 2 modems couldn't function with them.

It may be correct, but it is essentially repeating what I have said. That the driver doesn't work on newer linuxes!

All too common. All you want is for someone to actually read what you have said and make some sort of effort to solve it. Instead they send you a standard reply which just proves they are only interested in the number of replies they can make per hour, not in actually helping you. :x
