It's rather easy to set up CAPI for a passive AVM card.
First of all, check, if your kernel supports CAPI:
# modprobe capi
# modprobe kernelcapi
If these commands return no error, your kernel is ready 
for CAPI.

Install capi4linux from AVM (www.avm.de). 
Edit your capi.conf. There should be a commented ('#') 
entry for fcpci. Uncomment this line and comment
all other lines.

Then type 
# capiinit start.

If you have problems here, reply to me personally, because
it's a bit OT in a HylaFAX list.

Install capi4hylafax from AVM. Because c2faxrcvd is started
from init under RedHat and I think the libc/gcc deps are solved
correctly, it would be right to run ./install. (I did so on a
RH 8 machine).

You are asked for your MSN, DDI ....
Then "Save and Exit".

Check, if service hylafax is started at System-bootup.

Reboot you machine.

Test, if you can send faxes with c2fax*:
# c2faxsend -vf TIFF -d A-FAX-NUMBER fritz_pic.tif
(fritz_pic.tif is in the dir with the extracted 
capi4hylafax archive data)

If you have problems here, reply to list.

Have fun!
