Modem problem in 8.2 Beta 2

I have experienced problems communicating with my modem. I have looked in every manual and piece of information I've found for it and I have not as yet worked out whether it is a winmodem or not. The model is Creatix HCNR56k and it was preinstalled in my Fujitsu-Siemens Scaleo computer with a AMD Duron 800MHz processor. I would like to use it from Linux since my computer came with Windows Me which crashes all the friggin' time and I am just sick of it. So to communicate with the world I now have to reboot from Linux to log in to Windows and connect, and it is really annoying.
If you know how to set up the modem or if you know how I can connect to Internet without rebooting all the time, please let me know.

OK, the name of the modem is: Creatix HCNR56k. Me thinks that it is probably a CNR modem. If memory serves me, CNR (as well as AMR) was designed exclusively for modems that did not use very much hardware decoding, i.e. software modems, i.e. WinModems. There are plenty of threads on this forum about where and how to get various WinModems to work.

Have a look for it on the winmodem database.
