This may be a "Winmodem" or some other sort of software modem. If so, the only reasonable way to go is to get a proper hardware modem, preferably an external.

Ehh, winmodems are real headache nowadays. You should take a look at http://www.linmodems.org/, maybe you'll find a suggestion, but in fact only Lucent and ATech chipsets are working for now. Like Rid, I only can you advice to get an external modem.

sorry buddy no go for Redhat 8.0
alternative soultion
download a Redhat 7.1 Kernel RPM
we will need to have two kernels for this solution

1- run your linux box on the  kernel used in redhat 7.1(kernel 2.4)..thats means no ext3fs and a couple of more things

2. Have two kernels installed in the same system
the latest and also the one in Redhat 7.1(kernel 2.4)

now you will find appropriate drivers from

you can have two kernels in the same system...and you can boot whichever kernel you want...you will need to make some entries in grub/lilo whichever you are using ,,,,for that

http://www.motorola.com/softmodem/data-fax.htm#linux

download them..(ensure u are running your linux box from kernel 2.4) and install the rpm...sm56 will work after this...

poor support for sm56 these days...suggest trade it for a equally cheaper lucent/conexant modem with better support

if u are intrested....send a comment back

Open Terminal in superuser mode
Type lspci & press --ENTER--
Note : it's L in small case "lspci"
this will show the details of Modem in your system
Now if your modem chip manufacturer's name is lucent then
your manufacturer is correct
Now read following details of name of file and download appropriet one

File name : ltmodem-kv_2.4.18_0.13-8.22a3-1.i386.rpm
ltmodem-kv_ - Kernel name
2.4.18_0 - Kernel version
i386 - processor type (Intel 386 processor)

As linux can run on older pcs they give the type of processor
Now run the RPM package of apropriete version of kernel in package manager

Now run the PPPDialer programe and Click Setup
Provide Account info for Your ISP
Click MODEM tab and Select /dev/modem
Then Click 'Query Modem'
see if response is OK
If this is correct then you have successfully configured ur modem
Now try connecting internet
