The ltmodem.o has a dependence on the isa-pnp, which you have evidently compiled as a module rather than a kernel constit=
    insmod isa-pnp
prior to  
    insmod -f ltmodem
will quiet this complaint.

The residual comlaint:
>  Using /lib/modules/2.4.0-4GB/kernel/drivers/char/ltmodem.o
>  Warning: kernel-module version mismatch
>	/lib/modules/2.4.0-4GB/kernel/drivers/char/ltmodem.o was  compiled > for kernel version 2.4.0
	while this kernel is version 2.4.0-4GB
Evidently a kernel-headers-2.4.0 package was used to compile ltmodem.o,
as constrasted to your running kernel-version 2.4.0-4GB.  This results in the standard version mis-match complaint.  But =
there will be no effect on modem functionality.  
  insmod -f ltmodem
will serve, once isa-pnp is previously loaded.

You can quiet this complaint with "fixscript" as described on the LinModem HowTo page.  Fixscript will mask the version d=
ifferences.  After reinstalling the "fixscripted" ltmodem.o in the modules path with ./ltinst
auto loading of ltmodem should be enabled.  Also
  modprobe ltmodem
will load both isa-pnp and ltmodem.


Thus complaint can easily be quieted.  Download
