I am willing to learn. I don't know what drivers you are talking
about. I have an external Zoom modem. My expectation was that if any
configuration would be done it would be done by kudzu. At first kudzu
ignored the modem . The suddenly it said it found the modem and would
I want to configure it, Well I thought I had reached nirvana so I said
configure it. The next time I rebooted and twice after that at random
times it asks me if I want to remove the modem configuration. I say
no. However at no time in this process did the modem not work.
That is before it was configured by kudzu it worked and after it was
configured it worked. So exactly what drivers do I need to configure in
the kernel?
