Oh horrible memories :-)
If there is a TAD cable linking the soundcard to the modem that will allow
lots of noise to move around you system in odd & annoying ways.
The sound is almost certainly coming from your modem speaker (ick!).
I have the same thing in Win9x & linux.
In Win it's relatively easy to stop, just initialise the modem & it's gone
until you next reboot.
As it's a shite Winmodem, Linux don't see it too good.
You could also try messing with the volume controls in the system. Err no,
that's Win specific again.
Buy a new modem.
Me, i'll modem on in Win for the near future & wait for Cablelink to get
their cablemodems in gear.
I really hope they will work in Linux.
] You're on the ball. I've got a winmodem as well. There's a speaker on the
] card. Go figure.
] I'm thinking of scrapping the modem anyway because of serious
] linux-compatibility issues. It's 56K though.......
