Thanks so much for your reply Bjorn.

I wasn't really expecting one. I "thought" I did a thorough job of
searching the archives for anything 11c11040.  Even did searches
including fax and faxing.  But I will eagerly try again as faxing with
this modem is all I'm really interested in.  With all due respect to
dial up users, I've gotten spoiled with broadband. While
testing this modem and connected to a dial up ISP, I got a rude
awakening about the difference in speeds.

I chose to use efax or efax-gtk over Hylafax because my distribution
doesn't have them currently in the repos, and since I'm a packager, I
thought it a opportune time to package them.  Our users prefer
lightweight applications over bloat so I avoided Hylafax. It appears I
will be attempting to package today. :)
