Connexant SoftK56 Modem in Slackware 8

I have a Connexant SoftK56 modem, or so I am told by Windows XP Professional, and since I have no drivers for it, I am not sure exactly what the specifications and technical information ragarding the modem is.

Is this a WinModem, and if so, is there any way I could configure this modem to work with my Slackware or Redhat bozes, and how would I need to do that? Has anybody out there ever got it to work?

Thanks for any replies or help.

Don't use winmodems... :-)
Seriously, I don't know if this is a "winmodem", but the word "soft" suggests a software modem. Those seem to generate a disproportional amount of trouble if this site is anything to judge by. I think you need to check with the manufacturer if there is anything in the way of drivers for Linux, otherwise I think this is a no-go. External (real) modems are best if you don't want a lot of hair-pulling; PCMCIA, if applicable, seem to work OK with RedHat too.

Sorry for the delay, but I was certain that I finalized this thread since I haven't received any other e-mails suggesting otherwise. My sincere apologies.
