Mandriva 2009 Modem config problems

I have 3 modems that are recognized by my new Mandriva 2009 edition but they will not configure. One modem is an Intel 536EP data fax modem and the other two are listed as Smartlinks (one Device 2800). I am curious as to the best method of getting this system online as I cannot download the entire Mandriva One download with my dialup, where the slmodem drivers are supposed to be located. The kernel is 2.6.27 and the missing kernel component is slamr. I am somewhat new to this but can anyone let me know what the proper procedure should be? My computer is a 2.4GHZ Compaq EVO with no problems.

Go to linmodems and run the scanModem tool and it will produce documents with all the info you need to get some of them going. Intel has not supported Linux in a few years now, it was the fastest for me when I had 32 bit operating systems, no 64 bit support.

Thanks, This is a bit premature but appears to be the solution so I will get back with the success results.
