AMR lucent linmodem optimist

hello again.
not really a virgin anymore.
not since friday night. (rh9/xp dual don't know what else you might need that isn't herein.)

I wrote this question earlier but somehow I wan't logged in and so now I must write it again.
I blame windows.

on to the problem...

I have a lucent amr soft modem.
Modem: Silicon Integrated Systems [SiS] Intel 537 [56k Winmodem] (rev a0) (prog-if 00 [Generic])

I have looked. the scanModem thing tells me I have a 1039:7013.

now I can dig this, except that Mr. Clark's list of chipset status doesn't list my ?device? so I look and look and look, and every time I think I am getting close I find a line that reads
"does not work with lucent amr soft modems"

am I missing something about the helpfulness of these sites?

so maybe someone can break this down even further for me.
what we know:
1039:7013, SiS630, the modem stuff I said earlier,
sometime since friday night I have convinced myself this is a softlink chip, I really do not intend to open this Vaio box, the fcc server isn't serving. Further, on the scanModem output I am given a line that says SiS630, so I suppose this means something right??? is this the chipset? what is 7013?

now some tens of hours later I come accros some thread somewhere that I saved as "is this the answer"? it tells me that someone named Chunhua
has had success with a pctel-0.9.6 haveing a SiS 630 chip and the SAME modem even referencing 1039:7013, BUT...
with 2.4.20-8 and I have 2.4.20-6

to make a long question... well, just a long question,
boy, this thread I found somewhere fills me with HOPE!

I am about to go to the good side and try pcttel-0.9.6...

can anyone tell me why I am going to FAIL/SUCCEED?

my skills over there in linux are weak, so I need to know if the logic is faulty?

am I sol?

by the by:
I am given a caveat (S & M to me! but I am going to try it)

Notes: Finally I made it! I use
./configure --with-hal=sis --with-kernel-includes=/usr/src/linux-2.4.20-8/include
I encounter trouble with insmod [root@localhost pctel-0.9.6]# insmod pctel Using /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/misc/pctel.o /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/misc/pctel.o: The module you are trying to load (/lib/modules/2.4.20-8/misc/pctel.o) is compiled with a gcc version 2 compiler, while the kernel you are running is compiled with a gcc version 3 compiler. This is known to not work. So I used insmod -f pctel and ignored the warnings. I also disabled the sound module to let my modem work, they share the same IRQ number

any advice with this last bit will be of great use to me also.
help me get back to my new baby!
searching online on the windows side is not what I had in mind for this marathon session!
