I've gotten the last free version (0.99b something :) working but only
with kernel 2.4. As long as you have pciutils it should install in a
snap (as long as you can find a copy.) If you want to get it going with
2.6 you just need to work out which you'd rather pay for, a modem driver
or a decent serial modem :)
