Installing a modem to RH9


I've just install RedHat 9, and tried adding the modem. It's a NetComm (IN5992) 56K. It has install scripts and a driver for linux, but the location for the driver is wrong. I know this because it doesn't exsit.

Where do I copy the driver to?

what driver file do you have? We need name of the driver to tell you how to install it. When you install it, it will automatically be installed in correct directory...

The modem driver is ltmodem.o

The install Script is ltinst

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

# /*name and version number:@(#)ltinst 1.3*/
# /*date of get: 01/06/00 11:09:17*/
# /*date of delta: 12/28/99 12:10:46*/
#===========================================================================
# File Name : ltinst
#===========================================================================
#!/bin/sh

group="uucp"
mode="666"


device="/dev/ttyS14"

./ltuninst > /dev/null 2>/dev/null

/sbin/insmod -f ltmodem

rm -f $device

mknod $device c 62 78

rm -f /dev/modem

ln -s $device /dev/modem

chgrp $group $device
chmod $mode $device

cp ltmodem.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/

echo "/sbin/insmod -f ltmodem" >> /etc/rc.d/rc.local

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

and has problems with the
cp ltmodem.o /lib/modules/`uname -r`/misc/ line.
When I checked the dir on my install it's not there.
Should I create a directory for it?
