just 2 days ago I have installed Avantfax 2.2.8 on Feisty. I didn't get
your problem. Did you manipulate the sql file? If not, then I believe there
is a problem with the version of your mysql database. As soon as you  
have fixed your problem you will get another one. The installation  
howto on their webside is wrong. You have to call the sql script  
create_tables.sql with user root instead of avantfax, because the  
script deletes the database that was created by
the script before and creates a new database and the user avantfax again,
but avantfax has no permisson to create a database.
This should work: mysql -uroot -p avantfax < create_tables.sql

Currently I can use the avantfax frontend, but I am not ready with the  
setup of
hylafax. I had to make a ubuntu package for my Fritz!USB2 ISDN  
adapter, because
the fcusb2 module and the firmware is missing in linux-restricted-modules.
