Dennis,

Follow the instructions from scanModem:  

Support type needed or chipset:    hsfmodem


Writing DOCs/Intel.txt

For owners of a Dell PCs with Conexant HSF modems, a driver source package with full speed enabled is available, but requires driver compiling. Read DOCs/Conexant.txt


Start at http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/downloads-license.php to find the
hsfmodem package matching your System. For several Linux distros, there are
precompiled drivers matched to specific kernels. These have within the FileName,
your KernelVersion:    2.6.18.8.tex5
They can be found through http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads.php 
A more precise location may be given a few paragraphs below.
If an EXACT Match with your your KernelVersion is not found, one of the 
"Generic packages with source" near the bottom of the page must be used.
Downloaded packages must be moved into the Linux partition (home folder is OK)
and unzipped with:
    unzip hsf*.zip
The installation command for a .deb suffic packages is, with root/adm permission:
   dpkg -i hsf*.deb
while for .rpm suffix it is, with:
  rpm -i hsf*.rpm
Start at  http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full for
eventually download of a hsfmodem-7.68.00.12full_k.???.zip package
with ??? the package type (deb, rpm, tar etc)
These packages have compiled drivers but will also compile a driver, 
if there is a mismatch between the resident kernel and provided driver.
The generic hsfmodem-7.68.00.12full.tar.gz package only provides compiling support

Read DOCs/Conexant.txt

If you have problems after following the directions, please write back to list asking for help.

Regards,

Antonio
