Caller ID on Thinkpad T60

Network Caller ID (NCID) is a caller ID server that can get caller ID information from a modem. It sends this data to a caller ID client, either on the local computer, a computer on the network or a TiVo. The last is what I’m most interested in. I tried to get this working on my Thinkpad i1472, but that modem doesn’t support caller ID. I couldn’t find out anything about the modem in my Thinkpad T60 except that it’s a 56k V.92. I downloaded the NCID RPM from the NCID site.
# rpm -Uvh ncid-0.66-1.i386.rpm:
error: Failed dependencies:
perl(Net::Pcap) is needed by ncid-0.66-1.i386
tk is needed by ncid-0.66-1.i386

# yum install tk
Yum couldn’t find Perl Net::Pcap, but Google turned up an RPM
# rpm -Uvh perl-Net-Pcap-0.12-1.fc5.rf.i386.rpm
warning: perl-Net-Pcap-0.12-1.fc5.rf.i386.rpm: Header V3 DSA signature: NOKEY, key ID 1aa78495
error: Failed dependencies:
perl(IO::Interface) is needed by perl-Net-Pcap-0.12-1.fc5.rf.i386
# yum install perl-IO-Interface worked, then the RPM install of Net::Pcap worked and ncid was OK.
