As the owner of some of the world'sworst hardware, I had one of those
sm56 modems with a motorola chip on it. I never got it to work under
linux, and always hated it.
I gave mine to a windoze user. I would suggest you do likewise. There
just wasn't enough of them out there to get support going. Someone wrote
a driver and everybody forgot about it.
If you got the driver to compile, I would play with modules.conf and
read its manpage before scrapping it.
as for lspci: make a symlink to 'scanpci' in the path and you should be
ok on that one. It was looking for the thing.
