you are using a Fedora Core 4 kernel with 4K stacks and in some cases, 
the HSF driver requires more than that.

We offer a pre-compiled RPM of a Fedora Core 4 kernel with 16K stacks as 
a convenience for our users. You can obtain these kernels at:

i586: http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads-fc4-kernel-i586.php
i686: http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads-fc4-kernel-i686.php

Then, install the kernel and reboot in this new kernel. Finally download 
and install the HSF driver package for this new kernel version. You can 
also obtain it from the HSF driver download page at


To make your system bootable again, please boot in single user mode or 
with another kernel. You can boot in single user mode by adding the 
'single' without the quotes keyword at the end of the kernel command 
line. You can edit the kernel command line in GRUB. When you are booted 
in single user mode or in another kernel, remove the HSF modem driver 
from your system with the 'hsfconfig --uninstall' command in a root shell.
