Do we have to know modems?

The first set of objectives I looked at, on Wikibooks, had a requirement for modem setup and PPP on the LPI test. I then went to CompTIA and found no mention. Is knowing how to set up a modem a requirement?

    I would follow the objectives as presented by CompTIA:
    CompTIA Linux+
    Plantwiz

    'i' before 'e' except after 'c'.... weird?

    As PlanetWiz said go through the objectives via the CompTIA's site or through LPI's site. I believe the Linux+ is now LPIC-1 in disguise so taking the "Linux+" will give you LPIC-1 and Novell CLA.

    I'd like to get Linux+, which in turn give me the other two. I'll use OpenSuse so I don't feel like I am stealing the Novell cert. Then hopefully I will move on the LP! 2 and 3. I have made a list of books to buy. Unlike Security+ there doesn't seem to be a consensus for Linux+. I feel comfortable once I get out of the low level stuff like interrupts and IRQs. I could try and memorize them, but frankly have never used them.

    Oh, I don't know, what do objectives say? :D And oh, does wikibooks issue your cert or CompTIA?
    You'll find a great deal of online freebees that are tagged as an LPI prep material but are terribly outdated.
    If you are afraid of cheating Novell, use SUSE. But then you won't ever know what can apt-get do for you.

    I have used, Red Hat, CentOS, and Fedora, as well as Ubuntu and built a system using Linux From Scratch and Beyond Linux From Scratch, I know what apt-get is.
