Riptide HCF modems are not supported on 2.6 kernels. Like you have 
mentioned, you absolutely need the riptide driver to make the HCF driver 
work in that case and the riptide driver does not work on the 2.6 kernel.

We have not tested the snd-riptide ALSA driver but this driver is 
basically a port of the riptide OSS driver available on our web site as 
far as I know. It is possible that the snd-riptide driver will need some 
minor modifications to add support for the HCF driver.
