WinmoLinux Drivers for Lucent/Agere Winmodems - Download Page

Get either the source and compile it yourself or you can get a ready made binary installer for Debian, Redhat, Mandrake, SuSE or Connectiva

For binary installers you MUST make sure that you download a driver packages that has it the name Exactly the same kernel number that you have with what ever disrribution you are using. If you get the wrong one "it will not work" so check your kernel version number and choose the corrisponding driver to suit.

Just issue:
$ cat /proc/pci
And your modem should be listed. It seems Lucent modem are quite common in laptop so the link that johncoom provided should come in handy. However, if you have a Lucent AMR modem listed as an Intel AC'97 modem, you might want to visit and download the drivers, which are unfortunately not open-source. If you encounter any problems, you're welcome to post back.
