hsp56 micromodem on Linux

I have attempted to install an HSP56 micromodem on an AMDk6-2 running linux and windows on a dual boot.
I have used 2 different drivers that claimed to do what I needed but have come up short with error messages after the compile. linuxconf still wont recognize a modem on any port.  The modem runs fine on windows 2000 but I can't seem to solve this problem.
I've noticed that after the compile the pctel.o file that I'm supposed to copy to the kernel is gone.

   I'm a very beginnner in Linux, but I think I heared that only hardware modems can be used with linux, so do u know if mo/dem is beeing made by software or by hardware?
In fact, if u have the drivers for linux, means HSP56 is using hardware for mo/dem so ... I'm so stupid :(

You do not say wether this is an internal or external modem but I'm pretty sure it's a Winmodem.  That is, it is basically a software implementation of modem functionality and will only work with windows drivers.

Your best bet would be to get a 'proper' external modem and your problems would all go away.

This old question needs to be finalized -- accept an answer, split points, or get a refund.  For information on your options, please click here-> http:/help/closing.jsp#1
