      Smartlink modem is winmodem, isn't it?

    1. Install the kernel-source from FC1 CD
    and select the kernel development.
    download kernel-source from (make sure your kernel version is 2.4.22-1.2115 by running "uname -r")
    rpm -ivh kernel-source-2.4.22-1.2115.nptl.i386.rpm

    2. Download the driver from smarlink website

    3. Uncompress it
    tar zxf slmodem-2.9.10.tar.gz

    4. Follow the instruction in Readme file.
    cd slmodem-2.9.10
    make install
    modprobe .....
    Please read the Readme file for details.
