My kernel is the following:
Linux hp9543 #1 SMP Thu Nov 8 21:41:26 EST 2007 i686 
i686 i386 GNU/Linux
Fedora 8

My laptop is:
HP dv9543cl

My modem is:
Motorola SM56

I download the driver for Fedora 7 because there wasn't a driver for 
Fedora 8. It now recognizes the modem, however when I attempt to 
activate I get a message "mru <n> required".  In the ppp options screen I added
"mru 1500" but still get the message.  I'm not sure you need to 
activate.  I also tried "/usr/sbin/pppd call bigpond" and some "AT" 
commands are printed on the terminal but no connection.  Perhaps it 
is because I don't have a Fedora 8 version or perhaps I doing 
something wrong.  I will gladly pay the license fee I can the modem working.
