    The Intel developer site claims that the modem is supported under Linux, however, this little line from that page, "Host-based controller software contains code for all controller functions for data (including error correction and data compression), fax and voice modes." This leads me to think that this is actually a soft modem, also dubbed a "WinModem" and may not ever work under Linux without proprietary (not free) code.

    Since I don't have one of these modems, I have no way of knowing for sure. However, if Yast doesn't detect the modem, you will likely have a difficult time making it work. When it comes to Linux, you're generally better of with an external modem, or an internal modem with a BIOS that installs its own COM port (which have become increasingly rare since 98 ).

    Ahh, it's looking for a kernel module.

    Just so happens, I found the source code.

    Read the Intel-Readme.txt for further instructions.

    You need the source to connect the driver to the kernel.

    The driver in this case must be custom compiled for your kernel and linked to it. The instructions are not all that hard and it looks like all you need is in the text file D-cat linked to.
