PCI conexant generic soft 56k troubles

I have recently upgraded to Linux Mandrake 9.2. I was running Windows XP Professional before, but I have come into one slight problem with Linux before, but I am sure it can be fixed.

I have a conexant generic soft 56k PCI modem, but i cant get it to work with Mandrake 9.2. It has it listed as an unknown item. With windows, I would have downloaded a driver and installed it, but I am wondering can anyone please guide me through step-by-step on how to get Mandrake to recognise and use this modem?

Can anyone who knows a lot about Linux Hardware please help me out ad tell me what I need to do in order for this modem to work?

Your modem will not work with linux... You need hardware modem not software...

But I suggest you to try these free drivers
or these

I have conexant modem too... So I'll try these later too.

They have different version for different Kernel. Does this matter?
