SM56 is a Winmodem and cannot be detected by Linux. To use it you have to
install a file (given in PCQuest July 2001 CD). I followed the steps given
in the magazine and will run through them quickly.
insert the second CD and go to /mnt/cdrom/RedHat/RPMS
# rpm -Uvh sm56-85.1-10.i386.rpm
# sm56setup 852

to check if everything is up and running load the driver.
# modprobe sm56
# dmesg

your modem will be installed in /dev/modem which points to /mnt/sm56

Configure your internet connection using Kppp etc. and start surfing :)
