Ubuntu Hardy 8.04.2 kernel update revisited

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.
