Hello!

I recently bought that modem with hope that it will work perfectly like the ethernet card EnetB from the same family.

I discovered that inside is rockwells RCDL56ACFL chipset, and i now i am little scared that this is winmodem, how can i know that?

well cardctl ident report: 
Socket 1:
  product info: "PC Card K56 Fax Modem", "RCDL56ACFL V.90 & K56flex", "021", "A"  
manfid: 0x0013, 0x0000
  function: 2 (serial)

and from /var/log/messages

Aug  9 13:40:01 raindrop cardmgr[588]: initializing socket 1

Aug  9 13:40:25 raindrop cardmgr[588]: executing: 'insmod
/lib/modules/2.2.14/pcmcia/serial_cs.o port 0x03e8'

like i don't know how to recognize winmodem, but i think that this one is real, so what are the next steps to finaly get it working

like cardctl ident and status shows the card, but cat /var/stat/pcmcia/stab shows only ethernet card? any ideas?

l'd be really glad if someone could help me out, thanks in advance
