I have a Gericom Modem with a built-in, exchangable PCI Modem. The Modem is
a Conexant Softmodem 56k, which is from the family of the Conexant HSF
modems and it works with a 2.2.18 kernel and the Olitec driver for 2.2.17.
I had success in dialing out and  ppp-ing, but normally I do communications
with an ISDN card on a desktop PC, so I didn't push the Conexant to hard.

The binary only olitec driver also binds you to 2.2.18, while kernel2.4 has
some additional powersavings for my Laptop.
