slmdm for amr modem - insmod slamrmo fails

Hi you all!

I’m a newbie and I use Red Hat 8.0 (kernel 2.4.18-14) on a Toshiba Satellite 1800-911. My laptop has Lucent/Agere AMR modem so it needs a driver. I tried slmdm-2.7.14, 2.7.10 and (yes) even 2.7.9, but it just seems impossible to do it. Here’s what I did:

# cd /usr/src
/usr/src/ # ln –s linux-2.4 linux
/usr/src/ # tar xvfz slmdm-2.7.14.tar.gz
/usr/src/ # cd slmdm-2.7.14
/usr/src/slmdm-2.7.14/ # make
/usr/src/slmdm-2.7.14/ # make install-amr
Then I’ve added this line “options slmdm counry=<country>” to /etc/modules.conf.
Now I do
# modprobe slmdm
and that is OK. But when I write “# modprobe slamrmo” it gives this error (and it’s the same with “# insmod slamrmo” too):

# modprobe slamrmo
Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/misc/slamrmo.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - Smart Link Ltd.
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/misc/slamrmo.o: init_module: No such device
Hint: insmod errors can be caused by incorrect module parameters, including invalid IO or IRQ parameters.
You may find more information in syslog or the output from dmesg
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/misc/slamrmo.o: insmod /lib/modules/2.4.18-14/misc/slamrmo.o failed
/lib/modules/2.4.18-14/misc/slamrmo.o: insmod slamrmo failed

(I tried to load slmodemd 2.9.2 too. When I write # slmodemd --country=<country>
it says:
error: cannot open dev ‘/dev/slamr0’: No such device. )

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaseeeeeeeeee help!!! I’m nearly hopeless
