Unhappy Internal modem connection problem


*** Please help this newbie expatriate XP user ***

I've had Hed Hat 2.4.20-8 i686 rel 9 installed on my machine with XP with no problems except my internal model (seen on COM port 3 in Windows) can't be connected to. I've DLd Linuxant s/ware from linuxant.com which seems to done something..... before installing this s/ware no modem appeared in the 'Installed Hardware' but now 'HSF modem etc.' appears in the hardware list and now when Linux first boots up an interesting error message comes up related to 'depmod' (as in printout). After much reading a fix pointed to using 'hsfconfig', and by using 'hsfconfig' I go the following results:

[root@localhost root]# hsfconfig
Conexant HSF softmodem driver, version 6.03.00lnxt04082400full

If you need license keys, assistance or more information, please go to:
linuxant.com

When reporting a problem for the first time, please send
us the file generated by "hsfconfig --dumpdiag".

Warning: existing driver modules found under:
/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/misc/
Would you like to keep using them? [no] n

Pre-built driver modules that seem compatible with your system were found under
/usr/lib/hsfmodem/modules/binaries/linux-2.4.20-8.
Would you like to use them? [yes] y
depmod: *** Unresolved symbols in /usr/lib/hsfmodem/modules/binaries/linux-2.4.20-8/hsfosspec.o
depmod: irq_stat_R487376fc
[root@localhost root]#


My problem seems to be a misconfiguration but how to fix???
Any help would be appreciated.

prior to running hsflinmodem, you may need to do a make dep on the kernel source at /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8

Thanx or How can I 'make dep' on the kernel source ??

I'm relatively new to Linux having been mainly a Windows user, do you have an example of what to do?

Help would be greatly appreciated.

From the linux console (Ctrl-Alt-F1 to F6)
1. login as root
2. cd /usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8
3. make dep

that is all to it.
If you are using Linux in X mode, open a new terminal window, and type "su -" to gain root access. and follow steps 2 & 3

BTW I suggest you grab the most current RH8 kernel from fedoralegacy site or the redhat site. 2.4.20-28.8 I believe is the most current.
