 Wal-Mart PC Provider To Correct Modem Problem

Newsforge reports that the Wal-Mart PC provider is going to correct the Linux modem problem.

"Wal-Mart recently began offering Microtel PCs without Windows pre-installed to people who intend to use non-Windows operating systems like Linux and FreeBSD. In the April 29 NewsForge/Linux.com review, the modem tested is a Lucent software modem, identified as a type 048C. While there is a driver that works for many Lucent modems, the driver does not include support for this model, which is based on the SV92P chip."
