To use the internal modem on the TP600 you need two things:
1) in the kernel, the mwave driver
2) in userspace, the mwavem support program

The mwave driver is available as separate code which
can be compiled into a loadable kernel module.  If you are
using a very recent kernel then the code is in the kernel
source tree; the driver will be compiled (still as a
module) if you choose this when you configure your kernel.

The mwavem program is available in source code form.
I have prepared a Debian binary package.  There may also
exist an rpm somewhere.

Answer to your question

Assuming you are compiling the driver, you need to give
./configure the "--with-linuxsrcdir=" option with an argument
that names the patch to the source of the kenrel into which
you want to load the driver module.
