Setting up modem in Knoppix


I am having trouble getting Knoppix to recognize my modem. My modem is a Conexant soft 56 Modem(M). I am running it on an Emachines T2792. If Knoppix is unable to recognize this type of modem do you know which distibution will. I basically have severall.. Red Hat, Slackware, and Mandrake. Thank you.

Hello.
I installed this modem on one of my friends PC. Conexant modems use drivers that aren't GPL so you won't find them inside any distribution but they have demo versions you can use. I used the package found at
http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/...300full.tar.gz

It worked with the kernel 2.4.22 and 2.6.1 on a Slackware 9.1 distribution. If you think some prepackeged binary would better suit your requirements then try visiting
http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads.php
and read whatever information you find there.
Good luck.

This may be a dumb question, I believe you answered it above. Will these packages work with any version of linux then?

The source package will.

The rpms are build for specific distributions.
