[techtalk] winmodem sound driver

#1.  I am a single mom, and full time college student on a very limited budget, the fact that I was able to swing a new system at all when my old p100 bit the dust is no small miracle.

#2.  Wanting to give linux a whirl I wanted to purchase a box that would be linux compliant.  I went to pricewatch.com and purchased from their linux systems section this box that is very non linux compliant.

3.  I am simply trying to make the best of a bad situation without spending any more money.

I'd like a solution to my issue, or a truthful information that it can't be resolved, not advice that I can't afford to take.

Thanks :-)

I tend to agree, since the cost savings aren't that much anyway it makes sense to me to spend the extra on a "real" modem and not have to thrash your CPU every time you need to go online, although I haven't looked at any performance figures for winmodems I imagine the CPU hit would be quite high.
