Question Actiontec modem?

I am very new to Linux and recently installed Mandrake 8.2 but can't seem to figure out how to get the modem to work. The modem is an Actiontec with a lucent chipset.

This is what I got when I tried to install it, BLDrecord, and sent an e-mail to linmodems but got a return to sender notice:

#===== autoload section=======
If you cannot resolve the problems, please send /root/Desktop/BLDrecord.txt to

#===== autoload section=======

And I also have this checkout text but have no idea what this stuff means:

# this report may enable you to solve problems.
# But if further help is needed send /root/Desktop/checkout.txt to
# Please use as the following as the email Subject:
SUBJECT=(checkout, mandrake, Mandrake Linux release 8.2 (Bluebird) for i586, kernel 2.4.18-6mdk)
