if this is a Riptide HCF modem like it seems to be, you will need both the

You need to download the driver packages that match your exact kernel

You can find out your kernel version with the command "uname -r".

For the kernel architecture, you can run this command:
rpm -q --qf '%{ARCH}\n' kernel-`uname -r`

Please let us know if you need more assistance.

So, if you have stopped laughing (I know the least about drivers/software of
anyone on this list,) I would REALLY appreciate it if someone could point me

If this is the wrong place to ask, please advise.  Thanks.
