PcTel HSP56 MicroModem Driver Problem RedHat 9
 
I installed RedHat9 and My modem is "PcTel HSP 56 Micromodem".
I already download the driver for this modem (pctel-0.9.6 ) and installed it on my machine.

The output of the steps that i did to install the driver is as follows:

The load the modules using the command

#insmod pctel

output:

so i use -f option to load the modules
#insmod -f pctel
