ISA modem not working

I recently installed mandrake but my modem is not working with it.(works fine with windows)

i did dmesg and it showed

ISA: Aztech Modem card. --- which is correct.

But can't connect to internet or doesn't work with kpppd.... Query modem shows "modem ready", but doesn't give any info, all the fields are blank. when i try to connect, it gives "initializing the modem" and goes forever.

can anyone help me to fix this problem?

can't do configuration , it says modem not ready....

Is there a way to find out whether my ISA modem card is recognised by the system correctly....

i mean if the dmesg shows AZtech modem card, can i be 100% sure that mandrake has identified it correctly and has already installed any drivers necessery.....Because I am not sure whether my card is a winmodem or not... I checked the linux modem list and only have question mark before it, meaning status not known...
