i Unpacked the file & read the notes on "How to Install"

I used the commands MAKE CLEAN - MAKE ALL & MAKE INSTALL as said in installation guide but the third command (make install) show me this :

[root@localhost Intel-v92ham-425]# make install
bash haminst
running kernel 2.4.19-16mdk
installing hamregistry, used for persistant storage
installing ham module
install: cannot stat `ham.o': No such file or directory
installing hamcore module
install: cannot stat `hamcore.o': No such file or directory
mandrake hamboot script
starting module and utilities
insmod: hamcore: no module by that name found
[root@localhost Intel-v92ham-425]#

My Modem is INTEL HAM Data/Fax/Voice (563x family)

i have driver for that modem - i downloaded from INTEL's site but i m not sure that it is the driver for my modem -- please send me direct link to that modem driver so i can check whether i have same driver or wrong.
Thank u jstu

Redhat is usually pretty good about detecting hardware maybe the modem isnt even supported and if it is you will know as well as me where to find the correct driver for that modem. I have no experience with it. Sorry

The same thing happened to me when i had my old Ham data/fax danm that thing is so fast could connect up too 47kbs wow but now i have Cable 2.8Mbs well if you installed the drivers and compiled everthing it should be installed maybe there was an error writting to the config file or something like that. just open up kppp and pick the modem. it should be /dev/modem or something like that. not sure all i know is that it happened to me and i worked anyways. hope this help's and if it dosent sorry for wasting you time!
