BCM4212 v.90 56k modem DON'T work in Red hat 9


i have Broadcom BCM4212 v.90 modem (a winmodem). i got it working under redhat 8 with the help of linman's howto. but, when i upgraded to Redhat 9, the same procedure doesn't work out for me.

here's the out put of lspci -vv :

02:0a.0 Modem: Broadcom Corporation BCM4212 v.90 56k modem (prog-if 00 [Generic])
Subsystem: Broadcom Corporation: Unknown device 0002
Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR+ FastB2B-
Status: Cap+ 66Mhz- UDF- FastB2B- ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort+ <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
Latency: 32
Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 11
Region 0: Memory at feafb000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
Region 1: I/O ports at dfa0 [size=16]

Flags: PMEClk- DSI- D1+ D2+ AuxCurrent=55mA PME(D0+,D1+,D2+,D3hot+,D3cold+)
Status: D0 PME-Enable- DSel=0 DScale=2 PME-

and this is thr output of lspci -nv :

02:0a.0 Class 0703: 14e4:4212
Subsystem: 14e4:0002
Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 32, IRQ 11
Memory at feafb000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4K]
I/O ports at dfa0 [size=16]

there's no driver support for this modem from neither Gateway ( as it is GTW v.90 modem) nor from Broadcom.

any help for this problem???

I was wondering where I could find that driver. I am running Debian(Ubuntu 7.04), and was wondering if you by chance could know where I can locate the binary to self-compile or a compatable driver?
