Basically no - sorry :-(

This is mainly for Marc:

System RH 7.2++++ with kernel 2.4.19 ACPI, gcc 3.0.4 to compile
everything, but everything. I don't have a Vaio, Gwyn, I have a Compaq

I used to have this problem with HSF drivers between June and late
August. Have been up to now coasting along quite happily on

On reading this posting, downloaded
hsflinmodem-5.03.03.L3mbsibeta02101001.gz (note! not idem-1).

'hsfstop', o.k.

'make install', 'hsfconfig -ka' (because I already have the hsfconfig
details necessary, so don't need interaction).

"Sorry, modem busy". Redo: but this time 'hsfconfig -ka --nvram', 'cos I
have this Compaq.

All o.k., put the hsf download *.gz file, 1,050 kb, to my Internet web
site, no problem. Deleted it.
