(sorry for late reply -- not much experience with softmodems on
my part, the one in notebook Just Worked, so hoped someone
knowing Conexant ones better would answer)

You could just paste or write down/retype the output of 

lspci | grep Comm

PS regarding the original question, seems everything should be
already in place in case of Compact/Junior 2.3 and up; and FYI:
installing downloaded binary kernel packages is somewhat tricky
in that they are inherently incompatible with kernels other than
exactly the ones they were compiled for (well.... this is a bit
overstated but quirks to get a binary module to work with given
binary kernel in general case are just that -- quirks).
