Here are two sites that may be able to help you out.

You may still want to consider upgrading to RH 9.0.

There is a company called Conexant makes cheap chipsets which are built into a lot of modems with different brand-names.

There is now another company Linuxant which produces Linux drivers for the various modems which are built on Conexant chipsets:

This website will identify if you have a Conexant chipset modem and supply a free basic driver (limited to 14kbps data - try this one first for compatibility) or a paid-for driver ($14.95 for 56kbps with fax).
