USB Genius Modem not being detected!


I am completely new to Linux and finally decided to use Mandrake after trying RedHat, Gentoo and even FreeBSD.

I have a USB Genius Modem hooked up to my desktop machine but it's not detected by any system. To be more precise, Mandrake (and only Mandrake) can recognize a USB 56K Modem under the Unknown/Other category of the Control Center.

I am eager to see this modem working and make Mandrake "talk" to it properly. Everything else is working alright *So far*
