pct789 (as i cower in the corner)

Im running RH9, and Jan Stiftners latest pctel driver (0.9.7-6)
I believe i sucessfully installed the driver with ./configure -auto
it compiled with no errors, i did insmod -f pctel.o and ptserial.o with no errors (but the tainted kernel) I symlinked TTY13 to /dev/modem. I got Kpp to query the /dev/modem but the ATI responses came back emply (remember Im on a default install)
When I connect I get initializing modem and it just hangs, I can pick up my phone and hear a dial tone, no squelch. Any Idea here? I know theres numerous DOCS out there and HOWTO,s so just a link in the right direction would greatly help me.
Also if this post is redundant MODS feel free to move it somewhere else. It would be easier to buy a known working modem, but then wheres the challenge?
