Hey Jeff,

   No, you are correct. I had a 5699B and I have now replaced it with a 5610B.
Both modems do not work with 4.8_RELEASE. I started another thread called
"struggling with hylafax install" which you have already responded to that
details the problems with the 5610B modem.
   From your uname output I have decided to upgrade to 4.9 RELEASE in the
hopes that that supports it. I can't do a 5 branch upgrade right now.

fingers crossed and thanks,

P.S.- I'll update after the results of my upgrade.
