ubuntu modem problem


My first experience with Linux today (ubuntu) and it is installed and working. However I cant get my modem to work.

It is an IPW brand, usb connection, this outlines what I should do, but it didn't work as I probably have missed something:
-------------------
The driver is INCLUDED on the CD. The commands was :
insmod /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/ipw.ko

In /etc/ppp/peers create a file called 'sentech' with the following (substitute) :

noipdefault
/dev/ttyUSB0
115200
defaultroute
usepeerdns
hide-password
lcp-echo-interval 60
lcp-echo-failure 3
connect "/usr/sbin/chat -v -f /etc/ppp/peers/sentech-chat"
noauth
# persist
mtu 1400
user "username"
maxfail 1
deflate 15

In /etc/ppp/peers/sentech-chat create a file with the following :
TIMEOUT 30
ABORT "NO CARRIER"
ABORT "BUSY"
ECHO ON
SAY "Dialling sentech...\n"
"" \rAT
"OK-+++\c-OK" ATH0
OK ATZ
OK AT+CGDCONT=1,"PPP","sentech.co.za","username,passw ord",0,0
OK ATD*99#
SAY "Waiting up 30 seconds for connection ... "
CONNECT ""

In /etc/ppp/chap-secrets create a file with the following (substitute) :
username * password *

Now run
pppd nodetach call sentech
------------------
I did write to the person who posted that (in another forum), but as yet no reply. Only diffence I can see is /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/ipw.ko is now /lib/modules/2.6.12-9-386/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/ipw.ko in my system but I really dont know what to do with that info.

I did enter my own username/passwords as directed.

Typing the run command given at the bottom - I assume in the run user box? does nothing

Any help, links, advice etc.

I know this sounds obvious, but did you use the right kernel?

insmod /lib/modules/2.6.10-5-386/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/ipw.ko

should be:

insmod /lib/modules/2.6.10-9-386/kernel/drivers/usb/serial/ipw.ko

if i follow...
