Modem in Linux 6.1

I'm having a HSP PCI Plug & Play Data/Fax Internal modem.  I wish to configure it in Linux 6.1. I donot know the procedure to configure.  In Windows it is configured as HSP Internal Modem in COM4. I want the procedure to configure it in Linux 6.1 Whether any extra services to be added to Linux?  Any other parameters to be set? etc.

Not possible.

1. The only PCI modems that are supported are the ones based on "Lucent Venus" Chipsets.

2. HSP = Host Signal Processing = Modem relies on CPU to do all modulation = it is what is known as a winmodem.

http://www.redhat.com/support/hardware/intel/61/rh6.1-hcl-i.ld-14.html and www.linmodems.org for details.

Sorry, but you have no choise but to buy another modem.

I gave 'modemtool' and linked the modem to the port which is displayed - "COM4 under DOS". Then if I give 'minicom', then modem is initialized and said as online.

Yes, as i said. Your modem is NOT supported, and will always give a "busy" "unable to initialize" "already online"

In fact, since i know that is the correct answer, i am resubmitting the answer.

look at:

http://www.o2.net/~gromitkc/winmodem.html  and you will read

"So-called Winmodems, host-based, HCF-, HSP-, HSF-, controllerless, host-controlled, and soft modems require vendor-supplied software to do the work of proper hardware modems. The sale of these devices for x86-based PCs is becoming increasingly popular among retailers and OEMs because of their lower cost. However, Winmodems are only appropriate for use with Microsoft Windows on a fast Pentium."

and read on http://www.redhat.com/support/hardware/intel/61/rh6.1-hcl-i.ld-14.html

and see:

14.5 Incompatible Modems
The following modems are not compatible with Red Hat Linux 6.1/Intel:

[snip]

PCI Memory Mapped Modems (these do not act like serial ports)

Your modem is not supported, and there is currently NO way to make it work. Once again, the _only_ PCI modem to work is the ones based on the Lucent Venus Chipset.
