ADSL USB modem pppoe help???

Hi all

I am a fairly new beginner to linux, having only installed it once or
twice before, and finally settling with mandrake.

I just installed it tonight, and for the life of me I cant figure out
why my adsl modem connection isnt working.

Its pppoe with details as follows in winxp...

Device Name - Zoom USB ADSL WAN Adapter
Device Type - isdn
Sever type - ppp
Transports - tcp/ip
Authentication - MD5 CHAP
Compression - None
ppp multilink framing - off

its got a bunch of other stuff in the control panel that came with the
modem, like.....

ppp over ATM VCMUX[RFC2364]

I get the power light for the modem on, but its simply not recognizing
that there is a usb adsl modem at the port.....???

I would appreciate any help in setting it up , anything that anyone can
tell me about what to put in config files and were?

I can edit config files its just that I knead to no which ones to edit
and what to put in them.

The distro version is Mandrake 9.1

Cheers all
Hyperion out
