the "NO DIALTONE" and "NO CARRIER" symptoms are often caused by an IRQ
routing issue.

There are at least three options that might fix the problem.

1) Try playing with the following kernel boot parameters:

"pci=noacpi", "acpi=off", "noapic" and/or "apm=off".

2) Configure and install a generic 2.4 kernel (from kernel.org) with the
ACPI patches found on this web site:


3) Configure and install a generic 2.6 kernel.

With option 2 and 3, you need to install the generic modem driver package
(instead of a package specific to a single distribution/kernel). You will
find the generic drivers under the title "Generic packages with source" on
the download page. I recommend using the RPM when your distribution supports

Please let us know about your results.
