Please help me .Where can i find drivers for my modem? I have an HP 
Pavilion zt3000 laptop
I send you the modemdata.txt file that i took from the scanmodem tool.
I am new to Linux and i would like litle help

Mandrakelinux release 10.1 (Official) for i586
Kernel on an i686 / 
 on System with processor: i686
 currently under kernel:
 The kernel was assembled with compiler:  3.4.1
 with current System compiler GCC=3.4.1
    /usr/bin/gcc -> /etc/alternatives/gcc

Checking for kernel-headers needed for compiling.
Kernel-header resources are not evident.
Within your Linux distributions resources, search for package names with:
One of which must be installed if compiling drivers to match kernel proves necessary.
This is necessary for most modem drivers, through some Linux distributions provide some compiled drivers.
Within the output Modem/ folder, read CompilingDrivers.txt for details.

 The soft modem Subsystem operates under a controller
   8086:24c6 82801DB ICH4 
 capable of supporting under Linux AT LEAST modem Subsystem chips from manufacturers:

 The Subsystem PCI id does not itself identify the modem Codec.
 snd-intel8x0m not present

 Beginning check for older ac97_codec modems.
 An older ac97_modem codec was not detected.

 Checking through information gathered from LinModem ARCHIVES
 From prior reports, the modem codec type of the Subsystem is: SIL27
 The Subsystem has an Agere Systens codec SIL27
 SmartLink software should support this modem
 == Checking PCI IDs through modem chip suppliers ==

 Under the controller 8086:24c6 82801DB ICH4 ,
 with modem subSystem 0e11:0860     
 Alternative supporting packages are the SmartLink slmodem-2.9.N using its proprietary slamr driver, 
 OR the Open Source snd-intel8x0m.ko driver included with recent 2.6.n kernel installations,
    complemented by the daemon, slmodemd,  of the slmodem-2.9.9-alsa.tar.gz package available at:
    A major advantage is that driver compiling is not necessary upon kernel updates
.  The command sequence is:
    # modprobe snd-intel8x0m
    # slmodemd --alsa --country=YOURCOUNTRY hw:0 
   with the slmodemd providing for dynamic port creation:
         /dev/ttySL0 --> /dev/pts/N    
   and higher level functions.
 Read the slmodem package readme, Modem/Slmodem.txt and Modem/SoftModem.txt for details.
 For SuSE 9.2 users, there is an update  for driver slamr.ko loading during bootup. 
 To find it easily, search for "slamr" within

 SmartLink at owns vendor IDs 163c, 2000, 2003, and 2004
 The official download site is: ,
  but has older packages and new fixes.
      For the emerging 2.6.10 kernels, use the slmodem-2.9.9a.tar.gz  therefrom.
 Read Slmodem.txt  for details.

 Vendor=8086 is Intel, Inc. producing HaM and 536ep host controller free (HCF) modems, 537 soft modem
 and AC97 and MC97 controllers managing a varierty of non-Intel soft modem Subsystems.
 These subSystems often have PCI_IDs assigned by the modem assembler, rather than the chip provider.

 If a PCMCIA modem is currently inserted and the sockets activated by

 If the modem is known to have a Lucent digital signal processing chipset,
 then PCMCIA.tar.gz variant assembled by Joern Wustenfeld is necessary,
