configuring a Lucent Winmodem on Linux


I determined if my Lucent WinModem had a DSP, it doesn't.
I downloaded the source code for my modem driver.
I compiled the source code for my modem driver into binary code.
I installed the binary code for my modem driver on Ubuntu.
I configured my modem driver.
and i tryed Dialing out to connect to the internet.

I'm currently using a sucky 28k external modem device, the reason for doing so is that i currently was a Windows XP user, and i converted my OS to Linux, thus erasing the internal modem driver(s). Because it is a Winmodem, i would have to download the driver's for the modem, so I've been using an external modem.
I install all the software needed for the modem, and needed for compiling the binary code. Here is the website if you want to have a better look at what i did

wiki.ubuntu.com/Lucent

Now, the main problem I'm having is that the computer is trying to say that it cannot find the enternal modem. Jon, a superior friend of mine that knows abit about Linux, said that being the enternal modem was a softmodem, that it would be impossible to run on Linux.

So im here for a second opinion. chris "fakie_flip2000" (a member of this site) another superior friend of mind, told me this was a great website to come to for answer's of problems. can anyone help me please.
thanks,
Jeremy(ubuntu_user)

I wouldn't say impossible, just unlikely.

First try linmodems.org

If you can't find a useable driver, then disable the internal modem in your BIOS, and use the 'sucky' external one...
