Actually, I think that Lucent's driver has been open source (I didn't check
how "free" their license is) for at least a year now. No more of these ugly
binary drivers that you had to apply binary patches (aggh!) to on every
kernel version.

A quick google search turned out http://www.heby.de/ltmodem as a place you
can get the sources.

I'm using such a driver on my laptop (Redhat 7.2), I compiled it myself (I
don't know why Redhat doesn't include a module for this modem - maybe it
isn't "free enough") and the modem is working nicely.
