which application has trouble finding your modem with Red Hat 9? Can you
please send us the file generated by "hcfpciconfig --dumpdiag" in Red Hat 9?

With Mandrake, you had this message in the output of "dmesg" and this is why
your modem device didn't show up.

0433120.480: HCF: Asic_Configure(ASIC_CFG_BASE_ADDR) failed
Unable to handle kernel NULL pointer dereference at virtual address 000000e4

If possible, you should install the kernel source RPM supplied by Mandrake.
You could then use the generic drivers instead of the pre-compiled drivers.
This would probably solve the problem.

I don´t use this option because I don´t know. I'm no expert, I'm new user of

I have installed Red Hat 9 distribution for test purposes only.
/dev/ttySHCF0 exist, but the
modem not found.
