Ok Everyone, It seems Wine came up on reboot, as did the ability to find my modem, so now I have my astrology program on Linux and am able to connect to dial-up. This is great, except the connection is extraordinarily slow. I did have an update notice which may make a difference when I get home to dial up. Everything is working well on hispeed. Does anyone know any tricks for making the dial-up connection faster. The details says the modem hispeed is 57000kb, yet the download and upload speeds are 3.0 and less.
