When trying to install hsfmodem 
(hsfmodem_6.03.00lnxt04082400full_i386.deb) on a Dell Latitude D600 
running Debian Sarge I got:
Unpacking hsfmodem (from hsfmodem_6.03.00lnxt04082400full_i386.deb) ...
Setting up hsfmodem (6.03.00lnxt04082400full) ...
Conexant HSF softmodem driver, version 6.03.00lnxt04082400full

If you need license keys, assistance or more information, please go to:

When reporting a problem for the first time, please send
us the file generated by "hsfconfig --dumpdiag".

No pre-built modules for: Debian-3.1 linux-2.6.7 i686

Trying to automatically build the driver modules...
(this requires a C compiler and proper kernel sources to be installed)

Where is the linux source build directory that matches your running kernel?

Building modules for kernel 2.6.7, using source directory
/lib/modules/2.6.7/build. Please wait...

ERROR: no device detected by hsf driver
dpkg: error processing hsfmodem (--install):
  subprocess post-installation script returned error exit status 1

Attached you may find the output of hsfconfig --dumpdiag.

Could this be related to lack of info, in your package, on the device id 
info of the modem on this machine?  (see the lspci output).
I also downloaded the corresponding ".tar.gz" but was not yet able to 
find the error cause.   Since it seems others have been able to use your 
drivers on Latitude D600 machines, I hope this may simply be caused by 
some failure in device identification...

Best regards

PS: the atacched output of dmesg does not start at boot because of the 
length of cryptographic API tests...  I suggest that `hsfconfig 
--dumpdiag' runs dmesg as `dmesg -s 65536', for instance, to have better 
chances of getting some potentially interesting output.  Let me know if 
you need that additional dmesg output from my machine.
