Jeff, 
  This is the way to go.  William, please download
scanModem, from here 

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz

copy it to linux partition and become superuser
$ su -
password: *****

# gunzip scanModem.gz
# chmod +x scanModem
# ./scanModem

post to this list if you can't subscribe to
discuss linmodems org and I can relay your message to
the list.  If the slmodemd-2.9.X drivers worked for
you before I do not see why not, the
slmodem-2.9.11-20051101.tar.gz from smartlink
directory in linmodems will not do the job for you.

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/smartlink/slmodem-2.9.11-20051101.tar.gz

If these are the drivers, be aware that you will need
to apply some patches for it to work with Fedora Core
5, namely, I will refer you to 

http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/archive-sixth/msg01401.html

where doing as the instructions for each file will
work for Fedora Core 5.

Regards,

Antonio
