    User comment:

    Thanks for the material you have provided on this site. I have sucessfully installed hcfpcimodem-0.99lnxtbeta03042700.tar.gz upon a Compaq Presario 1500 Note book running Red Hat 9. The internal Modem is: Conexant Intl HSFi V92 MiniPCI Modem. The modem was detected straight away and successfully dials and maintains a solid dial up connection. Regards
