you don't need the AVM A1 driver. it is only for
active ISDN cards. the HiSax thing is the one to go with.
(which works correctly as it seems)

Subject: How to set up isdn

Hi. Now, there my lfs is running i would like to set up isdn. Therefor i
read the linux/documention/Readme and Readme-hisax, the i4l-faq and the
isdn-howto. But they all seem to think, that everybody will use isdn as
module or they are very old. what i need is a short exact description what
to do to set up an internet connection, include the commands. I compiled all
necessary isdn-issues in the kernel. First error i got during boot, but i do
not found a olution for this problem in the net:

I would like to check the i/o adress, but i do not know where it is written.
I have already installed the isdn4k-utils, but thats all i have done till
now, because i do not know what to do now. Is there anybody who can exactly
explain me what to do now in which order until i have a connection.
somewhere i read a sentence like this: Now you can make a call..., but how,
i am still new to linux, so i need the commamnds, too.
Thank you for your patience and your help
