[hsflinux] AMD Turion 64 not supported?

the source of the problem is:

/usr/lib/hsfmodem/modules/mod_engine.c:1: error: code model 'kernel' not 
supported in the 32 bit mode

I can also see this:

No pre-built modules for: Slackware-Slackware linux- i686

I suspect you are using a 32-bit (x86) distribution of Linux and even if 
you have a 64-bit (x86_64) CPU, you must use the x86 release of the 
driver and not the x86_64 one.

If you are using a 64-bit distribution on a 64-bit CPU, can you please 
try with a 2.6 kernel to see if there is a difference?
