I found out recently that if you update your repositories, including the
Dell PPA, in Hardy, you can install dkms followed by hsfmodem-base-dkms.
This will update the modem and sound drivers for any updated kernel you
boot into including 2.6.24-24.
You can read the forum post I saw this in at
Hope this helps.
