Unhappy Conexant soft 56k modem under Slackware


I have a problem installing Conexant modem under Slackware. I hace used pkgtool to choose a modem configuration script. Then i choose on which pot is it. An finally when i try to query my modem with kppp, i get message "Modem is busy". I have tried to use an lt_serial.o but the result is still the same. The problem is not in the symbolic link '/dev/modem', it is linket wright. The modem is in com3 (undet win-dos). Please, can help me?

I have solved the problem.
go to this site:
http://www.linuxant.com/drivers/hcf/index.php

#--------------------------------------
#to check out you modem, type:

lspci -v

# then find your modem there, remember the position of
# the modem( the number (example: 00.50). After that type:

lspci -nv

# here find the number of the modem and you can se a number like 14f1:2004 - this is the model of your modem

Now i have some problems with ppp. it says:


pppd: This system lacks kernel support for PPP. This could be because
the PPP kernel module could not be loaded, or because PPP was not
included in the kernel configuration. If PPP was included as a
module, try `/sbin/modprobe -v ppp'. If that fails, check that
ppp.o exists in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/net.
See README.linux file in the ppp distribution for more details.

a part of linux ant is a free,
the free part supports up to 14400 bps, and the other version supports more.
