A pleasant lady at the 650-561-9820 number directed me to this address--be 
sure and give her my thanks.

I am looking for someone in the South San Francisco area to "do some 
hand-holding", etc.  I am blind and new to Linux within the passed 2 
weeks.   A friend in Fremont helped install the 'fedora core 2 
distribution on my CPU--with a MS-DOS 7x & Windows 98 2nd ed partition.

I cannot get my U.S.Robotics Sportster 56000 to work in Linux, no 
recognition!  Thinking of installing a PCI modem, but have no idea as to 
what I am doing.

Probably will have other questions and issues as I grow along and would 
like to find a willing helper locally. My friends on the Speakup list, a 
blind speech access orientated group, have no more suggestions as to how I 
might get my old modem to work--but for, "forget dialup and go cable or 

Any suggestions you might have are appreciated.

Cordially yours,
