We need to know the exact kernel and the error message your getting, without this info we'd just be guessing.

Have a look at your XF86Config-4, there probably are not any entries for 16 and 24bit.

drako12:
search all forums for 536ep and look for my name heading a recent thread. I've got as far as getting the modem to dialup and even surf for a while.

I wonder if there are utilities which specifically support HaM modems? Kernel support for HaM modems? Who would one ask?
