Winmodem not supported - Linux Setup, Configuration & Administration

I have a ComOne Discovery V.90 MC220 PCMCIA modem that, according to Linmodem, doesn't have support for Linux. Is there a way to install it anyway? Thanks, -- Charles. Fatal error for /usr/bin/laden...

    Is there a way to install it anyway?

    If you mean install Linux, sure: go right ahead. Just no modem.

    If you mean install the modem, you could leave the card plugged in. Just
    that Linux will not support it.

    If you want a Linux-only system with a working modem, you might give
    that brain-damaged WinModem to your worst enemy and buy a real one, such
    as U.S.Robotics 5610B.

    Try going to the site: http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/, and downloading
    the scanmodem script. Untar and run the script. It will give you
    directions on what to do.

    Linmodem, doesn't have support 


    ERROR ALERT!

    The com1 discovery is the MC221, and is a conextant chipset winmodem.

    The MC220 is a Platinum 4 in 1 which is a full modem, not a windmodem.

    www.com1.fr


    com1 say the mc221 is a conexant chipset, its a feature that the chipset is
    cheap, and that saves you money.


    You would think that the linux conexant driver should work, because many of
    the conexant chipset pcmcia cards listed at the following URL are said to
    work. There's a good chance...

    http://www.idir.net/~gromitkc/pcmcia_list.html


    Why wouldnt all the conexant chipset pcmcia cards work with the generic
    driver?
