Subject: Trying to install 5.99b on my new Debian system ...
Content-Type: text/plain; charset=us-ascii
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit

I just installed Debian or at least some of it.  I only have the base
system mainly because I have no connection to the Internet.  I am trying
to install Debian using FTP or HTTP.  Since how I do not have the CDs or
the myriad of packages on disk I am stuck in the mud until I can get my
Lucent WinModem working with the base Debian system.  The kernal is
2.2.19pre17_idepci.  I downloaded
ltmodem-2.2.19pre17-idepci_5.99b_i386.deb and used the dpkg -i command
on it but the install failed.  It is saying that it depends on package
kernal_image_2.2.19pre17-idepci but that this package is not installed??

I have no idea what this means.  As far as I know I have followed
instructions to the letter.  How do I install this kernal_image
package?  Is it possible that the image it is looking for is in /boot.
The current image in /boot is vmlinuz-2.2.19pre17-idepci.  Could it be
that I need to rename this file to kernal_image-2.2.19pre17-idepci and
make the appropriate changes to LILO?  I am at a lose as to what I have
to do to get this modem to dial out.

This modem is working fine with my RedHat system using 2.2.14 and
version 5.68 of ltmodem.o

Please help, thank you.
