HSP56 Micromodem!

Hi everybody!

I'm quite new to linux, and I've got a hsp56 MicroModem.

I've found some drivers for it (

Anyway, I'm running RedHat 7.3, and I'm having a lot of trouble getting them to 'make'. when I ./configure --with-hal=pct789, I get an error saying it cannot find the modversions.h file.

So I created a symbolic link using ln-s /usr /usr/src/linux (seeing as it tries to find */include/linux and my modversions.h file is in /usr/include/linux).

When I go into the file manager and go to /usr/src/linux/include/linux my modversions.h file is there, but when I ./configure --with-hal=pct789 it isn't!

I'm not sure what to do..i'm at my wits end with this, I've reinstalled redhat a few times just trying to get it to work in case I stuffed something up, but all to no avail.

If anybody has any ideas, or has previous experience with this please help me

Thanks alot everybody,
