So I have an IBM Thinkpad A20 with an internal Xircom MPCI+ 56k modem (it's a winmodem). I downloaded the Linux binary version of the Lucent Tech driver that's supposed to get it working, "tar"ed it open and am looking at two drivers (modules?) lt_modem.o and lt_serial.o. I tried modprobe but modprobe says it can't find these files. Do I need to mention them in a specific file or put them somewhere special? Or am I just doing everything wrong?
If it's relevant, I'm running Generations distro (based on Knoppix) using kernel 2.6.11.

Many Thanks

Yes, the files need to be in a particular directory. The ltmodem.o and lt_serial.o are not 2.6 modules. 2.6 modules are ltmodem.ko. I did not find a 2.6.11 kernel version but Knoppix is based on debian. Can't much help otherwise..

The install instructions:
Ltmodem with kernel 2.6

* Download and unpack the most recent version archive.
* Do READ the README carefully!!
* The 2.6.n kernel must be compiled with serial_core and crc32 (in Lib routines) support either as modules or in the kernel.
* Edit KERNEL_DIR variable in Makefile to reflect your 2.6 kernel dir.
* Then just run make.
* You will get ltmodem.ko & ltserial.ko.
* Copy them to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/other/ dir
* Run depmod -a
* Edit your modprobe.conf to load ltserial (not lt_serial) for /dev/ttyLT0.
