i'm not sure if this is the correct place to put this message but...

yesterday, i installed the binary motorola sm56 modem drivers. these 
were the steps:

- install from source rpm, as the drivers supplied by motorola, are only 
in thar format
- rpm -i sm56.rpm
- All ok, except for this: /usr/sbin/sm56setup: lspci not found (or 
similar). The last messahe was: installation of sm56 succesful

the instalation created a module called sm56.o in the modules 
directories, and, when i typed lsmod sm56:

- sm56 was compiled with gcc 2, and the kernel with gcc 3. it's known, 
that this doesn't work

Motorola hasn't support anymore this winmodem, so i'll can only work 
with that module complied with gcc2.

Is there any solution, or must i buy a modem? :-(
