If I take this one step at a time and start with the licensing issue...

I had to compile my own module as I have the latest kernel supplied by 
Fedora Core 6 ( 2.6.20-1.2933 )

I have tried to use efax from the command line to send a fax but nothing 
discernible happened.

Here is the output from hsfconfig --info

[root at box ~]# hsfconfig --info
Conexant HSF softmodem driver, version

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".
