Dial Up Modem Driver

I'm sorry if I was not clear enough.  I downloaded and unzipped
scanModem and after running it I recieved the following output.  This
PCI Modem came with the drivers on the disk for Linux.  What I do not
know how to do is to load the driver.  If it does not work I do not
expect anyone to cry for me over the matter but I would appreciate some
help if anyone has any.  Surely, with the thirty-two and the sixty-four
bit drivers in the folder for linux there is a way to install those
drivers or to apt-get install them from somewhere.  I need to deliver
this unit in the morning.

This is an AMD x64 Dual Core running the 32 bit Hardy version.

Thanks to anyone that can help.

 The PCI slot 00:05.0 of the modem card may be disabled early in
 a bootup process,  but then enabled later. If modem drivers load
 but the  modem is not responsive, read DOCs/Bootup.txt about possible
 Send dmesg.txt along with ModemData.txt to discuss at linmodems.org

===== Advanced Linux Sound Architecture (ALSA) diagnostics =====
The ALSA packages provide audio support and also drivers for some modems.
ALSA diagnostics are written during bootup to /proc/asound/ folders.

The ALSA verion is 1.0.16
The modem cards detected by "aplay -l"  are: None

The /proc/asound/pcm file reports:
- -----------------------
00-01: ALC662 Digital : ALC662 Digital : playback 1
00-00: ALC662 Analog : ALC662 Analog : playback 1 : capture 1

 For candidate modem in:  01:06.0
   0780 Communication controller: Conexant Unknown device 2f50
      Primary device ID:  14f1:2f50
 Support type needed or chipset:	hsfmodem

For owners of a Dell PCs with Conexant HSF modems, a driver source
package with full speed enabled is available, but requires driver
compiling. Read DOCs/Conexant.txt

 Support for the 14f1:2f50  and 14f1:2215 HSF modems is projected early
in 2007 from Linuxant.

Start at http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/downloads-license.php to
find the
hsfmodem package matching your System. For several Linux distros, there are
precompiled drivers matched to specific kernels. These have within the
your KernelVersion:	2.6.24_22_generic
They can be found through
A more precise location may be given a few paragraphs below.
If an EXACT Match with your your KernelVersion is not found, one of the
"Generic packages with source" near the bottom of the page must be used.
Downloaded packages must be moved into the Linux partition (home folder
is OK)
and unzipped with:
	unzip hsf*.zip
The installation command for a .deb suffic packages is, with root/adm
  sudo dpkg -i hsf*.deb
while for .rpm suffix it is, with:
  rpm -i hsf*.rpm
 From  http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hsf/full/downloads-ubuntu-x86.php
 download hsfmodem-
 Under Linux unpack with:
 $ unzip hsfmodem*.zip
 Then install with:
 $ sudo dpkg -i hsfmodem*.deb
 Subsequently, the modem should be found with
 $ sudo wvdialconf /etc/wvdial.conf
 Edit in your personal information with:
 $ sudo gedit /etc/wvdial.conf
 and try dialing out with:
 $ sudo wvdial.
 See DOCs/Testing.txt  for details.

Predictive  diagnostics for card in bus 00:05.0:
	Modem chipset not detected on
NAME="Audio device: nVidia Corporation MCP61 High Definition Audio "

 High Definition Audio (HDA) cards MAY host a modem chip in their
 and many are supported by the ALSA audio+modem driver snd-hda-intel
 A modem was not detected on HDA card 10de:03f0.
 If another modem card is present, then most likely 10de:03f0 does not
host a modem.
 If another modem card has not been detected, then possibilities are:
	1) A Conexant modem chip is present on 10de:03f0, as Conexant chips
 are frequently not detectable by ALSA diagnostics
	2) The modem may be of the older non-PCI Controller Chipset (hardware)
Try detection with Root permission:
	sudo wvdialconf  /etc/wvdial.conf

Support can likely be achieved through two mutually exclusive alternatives:
1) The hsfmodem software for Conexant chipset modems: Read DOCs/Conexant.txt
The following ALSA alternative CANNOT work with Conexant modems.

2) An ALSA modem driver plus slmodemd.  Read DOCs/Smartlink.txt for
details, and
to test get the package SLMODEMD.gcc4.2.tar.gz from:

 Completed candidate modem analyses.

 The base of the UDEV device file system is: /dev/.udev

 Versions adequately match for the compiler installed: 4.2.3
             and the compiler used in kernel assembly: 4.2.4

 Minimal compiling resources appear complete:
   make utility - /usr/bin/make
   Compiler version 4.2
   linuc_headers base folder /lib/modules/2.6.24-22-generic/build

 However some compilations and executable functions may need additional
 in the FileNames.h (so called kernel "h"eaders) collection installed in
 /usr/include/ .
 For martian_modem, additional required packages are needed. The also
required headers of package libc6 are commonly installed by default.
 Compiling hsfmodem drivers does require linux-libc-dev and libc6-dev
packages, for kernels 2.6.24 and later versions.
 In not included on your install CD, search for them at
 or comparable Repository for other Linux distros.
 When compiling ALSA drivers, the utility "patch" will also be needed.

If a driver compilation fails, with message including some lack of some
FileName.h (stdio.h for example), then
Some additional kernel-header files need installation to /usr/include.
The minimal additional packages are libc6-dev
and any of its dependents, under Ubuntu linux-libc-dev

If an alternate ethernet connection is available,
$  apt-get update
$  apt-get -s install linux-kernel-devel
will install needed packages.
For Debian/Ubuntu related distributions, run the following command to
display the needed package list:

Otherwise packages have to be found through http://packages.ubuntu.com
Once downloaded and transferred into a Linux partition,
they can be installed alltogether with:
$ sudo dpkg -i *.deb

To enable dialout without Root permission do:
	$ su - root  (not for Ubuntu)
        sudo chmod a+x /usr/sbin/pppd
