Post HSF wrongly identified as HCF?

:smash: PLEASE HELP!!

I want to get rid of MS Windows altogether but cant get soft? 56k winmodem
to work under linux 2.4.16 with Olitech driver.

Do I have a HCF or HSF modem?
Have just recompiled kernel from 2.2.17 beta to 2.4.16
Olitech driver installation says NO MATCHING INF FILES.
Perl script searches for device ID 2004 (NOT 2005!)
If modem is indeed HSF, where do I go from here?

Connexant chip on Web-Excel(Australian) 56k modem has following markings:


After searching PCI winmodem database, device ID should be 1085, 2000 or 2004.
However, as can be seen below ID is 2005.

/proc/pci contains the following entry:
Bus 0, device 12, function 0:
Communication controller: Rockwell International HCF 56k Data/Fax Modem (rev 1).
IRQ 5.
Master Capable. Latency=32.
Non-prefetchable 32 bit memory at 0xd6800000 [0xd680ffff].
I/O at 0xe800 [0xe807].

/proc/bus/pci/devices contains the following entry:
0060 127a2005 5 d6800000 0000e801 00000000 0
0000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00010000 00000000
0000000 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000

Windows 95 (which I am using the modem under) says:
Conexant PCI Modem Enumerator
Hardware version: 001
No driver files are required or have been loaded for this device.
IRQ 05
Memory Range: D6800000 - 0680FFFF

A HCF modem usually means your out of luck when it comes to linux. Go to Every Thing Linux at Five Dock and you can get a proper modem that will work with any O/S.
