scanModem a software tool that finds a suitable driver for a connected modem. scanModem is not available in gentoo.git, so it has to be manually downloaded and extracted:

user $gunzip scanModem.gz
user $chmod +x scanModem
user $./scanModem

It will create a folder Modem and the file scanout.something contains the wanted information. If a modem is detected, the driver is named next to Drivers, e.g. for a HSF modem:

FILE ./Modem/scanout.something
