I just discovered your posting today, and have been researching the driver. The main Aztech download file is not accessible at the Azrtech site, but I found it somewhere else. The file contains something that suggests that the modem is a SmartLink AMR (riser). But since the driver was released in 2001, it cannot be expected to work with the newer linux kernels; drivers are built for each kernel release, now 2.6, whereas the driver was for 2.4 at the latest.

Since it is probably a SmartLink modem, one would think that our current driver for those modems might work. However, in working with that driver I have seen commentary that it does not support the AMR/"riser' version of the hardware. I fear there is no way to use it with either Puppy or Ubuntu. But it can't hurt to try the current driver, anyway.

Using the BootManager, click on the button for adding modules to be loaded at bootup, find and select "slamr" in the left pane and click "Add" to move the name to the right pane. Click "OK" twice to get out; no parameters are needed. Then reboot, and the driver should be loaded, although the Connect Wizard still probably will show no modem detected. You can try going to PupDial and probe>PROBE-ing for the modem, but that will probably fail, too. But we tried. And maybe the unexpected will happen.

BTW, before doing the above, be sure the wizard initially shows no modem detected. If another modem is shown, it should be probe>ERASEd in PupDial, then do the reboot.

I wish I had better news, but that's how it is.
