Configuring / Plugging a usb modem to Slax...



Ok. I'm pretty new at this. So again, bear with me...

I have a laptop with a faulty HD. I'm running Slax on a LiveCd.

I'm trying to install a usb modem but of course, something isn't working...

So, basically there are a couple of questions here...

1) Can it be done? Considering that it's running from the CD...

2) I'm assuming that I have to "mount" the usb modem but I don't have the slightest clue either where or how.

3) Although I just found out that the system already recognized the usb device (through KinfoCenter - USB Devices) still, I don't know how to enable it...

    First off any setting you make will not be saved because they cannot be saved to the disk, once the computer is rebooted the changes will be lost.

    Since the modem is detected you should be able to use kpp (if on KDE) , I beleive gnomepp for gnome or even wvdial from the command line to configure and activate the modem. The question at hand is if any of the listed apps are on your live CD.
