MIchael,

Since your modem is not by
# lspci
it is presumable an ISA brige type, The ltmodem-2.6.8-1-686_8.31a8_i386.deb
cannot work with your 2.6.9 kernel, as they are only matched to a Debian kernel 2.6.8-1-686.

However 2.6.9 sources are, I thing, on my laptop which I can access later,
and will send you a matching installer.
