installing conexant hcf modem on slackware 10.1


I've tried to install the driver from source tarball downloaded from linuxant website
The driver compiles fine with make install but when issuing hcfpciconfig as suggested by installer at the end I got a message complaining about missing CONFIG_SERIAL_CORE option in kernel configuration
What and where is this option in kernel conf. ? I tried to enable serial port, all needed ppp stuff etc. also pcmcia serial in kernel config, compiled new kernel, but it doesnt help...
Or do I have to point somewhere else as /usr/src/linux ?
Or is kernel config thru /proc needed to be accesible ?
The kernel I use is 2.4.26 and my modem is Conexant HCF 56k Modem which is supported according to README in hcf drivers....

If I were you, I would go to /usr/src/linux and type

# make menuconfig

Then type / and search for "serial_core" or something like that.

Hi, I looked for it, strange thing is that CONFIG_SERIAL_CORE is only considered as a config options in the arm 'platform' branch of kernel tree.

However, I installed kernel ( bareacpi.i ) along with and config from original slack cd ( run lilo... ) and tried to compile modules with hcfpciconfig, but it ended with unresolved symbols when modprobing... (??)

What am I doing wrong / missing ?
