Installed Linux 2.2.6 but need help with modem

Hello All,

I have an IBM 600X laptop. I have just recently and successfully installed "Tiny Linux" [Linux kernal 2.2.6] to the computer. I re-booted after installation and found myself at the standard UNIX screen. I can log in but that is about it. I need help.

1. How do I connect to the internet?

My computer has a phone jack input on the left hand side. I also believe that there is an internal modem inside.

2. Once I connect with the internet, how do I obtain and install packages related to X Window?

Thanks for the time and attention to this matter,

Brian Gallagher
