I only have a couple of older externals left (a cheapo clone 56k 
voice/fax/data with cirrus logic chipset, and an even older cardinal 
33.6 fax/data).  Both work fine with default setup from the 
faxaddmodem script, although they are only Class 1 fax-capable.

I followed the stuff in the setup docs and man pages; I used to be 
pretty good with slip, ppp, etc, but this is the first time I've 
ever used the fax stuff under linux.  And since I've had DSL for 
years now, my modem skills are getting rusty...

The first thing to try is setserial, and make sure your serial port 
is setup properly (regardless of whether it's an internal or 
external modem).  I usually use minicom to play with AT commands and 
stuff, which is a good test of whether your comm port and modem are 
configured and working properly.  I also tried efax before hylafax, 
which would also help confirm whether or not your modem is working.

Sorry, but I don't have more than a few weeks of faxing under my belt...

HTH, Steve
