[opensuse] Color me stupid :( Need slusb

Well, I win this year's prize for being an idiot.

I went looking for an external modem, so I could get past having a bunch of
WinModems in my cupboard and make progress on setting up a simple fax server. I
found one for $17 on craigslist, did a quick search to discover that somebody
somewhere was actually using this under linux, and bought it.

Weeeeelllllll,

It turns out that it's another breed of soft modem, and although it seems to be
recognized by my system (OS 10.0) the output from hwinfo says I need to
"modprobe slusb" to get it running.

But there ain't no slusb available, and I can't even find out what package that
would be part of.

I tried the softmodem stuff, but that didn't change anything.

Any offers, or should I just tell the world I don't deal with FAX any more!?

Cheers,
Simple Simon
