I'd like a safe place to ask newbie tech questions. 
Example: I'm trying to get online with a TP600 which
has an ACP Winmodem. I have the latest Linux
driver from IBM. When I try to install I get numerous
error messages so no joy. Running RH 8.

It seems to me that Linux talk groups tend to be
divided into *very* newbie talk which I don't
need and advanced tech which is over my head.

Just one lurker's opinion.
