USRobotics internal modem in RH9

the story is:

i am dual-booting RH9 and WinXPPro. i have a US Robotics 56K internal modem, that shows up on com3 on the XP side of things. i have tried to set this up in RH, trying to echo the card on the ttyS2 port. i get no response. i have tried running kudzu to try and detect it...but with no dice. my only thought was to check out, to see if my chipset was a "winmodem". it said that it was, however there might be a way to modify a conexant driver and recompile it into the kernel for it to detect a large number of conexant chipsets (rockwell and USR being two). my question is: has anyone done this? is it possible? are there any references for making winmodems into linmodems? or should i just spend a little money and get an external modem?

any help is greatly appreciated!
