hi...history of what is done: on a fresh install fedora core 3 on a dell
inspiron 8200. (luckily eth0 is up!)

did scan modem and found:
 The soft modem Subsystem operates under a controller
   8086:2486 82801CA/CAM AC97 ICH3
Also in the data file was this message I thought might be important...

 The kernel-2.6.9-1.667 was compiled with CONFIG_REGPARM, providing more
compact and faster code.

 The kernel was assembled with compiler:  3.4.2
 a gcc package must be installed to support driver compiling

Checking for kernel-headers needed for compiling.
 kernel-headers have base folder /lib/modules/2.6.9-1.667/build

 Modem symbolic link is:  /dev/modem -> /dev/ttyS1

Did the kernel .stk16 update....And then did the install. While
installing i got this error message on the web:

warning: hsfmodem- V3
DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 5dfbf7dc
Conexant HSF softmodem driver, version

Pre-built driver modules that seem compatible with your system were

WARNING: renamed existing /dev/modem to /dev/modem.old:

ERROR: no device detected by hsf driver
error: %post(hsfmodem-
scriptlet failed, exit status 1

I downloaded the public key...but when i go to install it in terminal i
get this...
--import/pubkey unknown option

i am stuck! Can anyone point me in the right direction?
