Linux Modem Problem

I am very new to linux and am having a problem seting up my modem.  When I try to connect to my ISP, I get a modem busy response.  It is a Rockwell HCF 56K data/fax PCI modem.  It currently resides on COM2.

That modem is not supported. No workaround yet.

http://www.redhat.com/support/hardware/intel/61/rh6.1-hcl-i.ld-14.html for details (valid even if you do not run redhat

The only PCI modems that will work (currently) are those built on the Lucent Venus chipset.

You have no choise but to buy another modem.

And also since the "HCF" is a soft-modem, it will not work even when the PCI modem-bit is supported. Since this isnt a 'real' modem, but relies on the CPU (what is abit incorrectly referred to as a 'WinModem')

Invest in a real HARDWARE modem. It should solve all your problems. What you have is also known as a WinModem. That's because it depends on Windows OS and the computers CPU to run.
