How can I detect a PCI modem on Red Hat 9?

There are a couple of ways to detect modems under Red Hat 9. The first is to use the lspci command to list all the PCI devices. You must use the "lspci-v" at the command line. You can also can also use the command "cat/proc/pci" to list all PCI devices on the PC, which is once again a command line procedure. You will then be able to discern the type of device and chipset of your modem from the output of either command. This process gives you the technical information but you will then need to configure your modem connection. You should consult the Red Hat Linux 9 Customization Guide which includes a section for Establishing a Modem Connection using the Network Administration Tool.
