problems with Intel 536EP PCI Modem

I have a Intel 536EP PCI Modem and I don’t know how to make it work in Slackware Linux 10.1. I downloaded the drivers from Intel, installed them… but if I run kppp, then add a new modem(/dev/modem : symbolic link to /dev/536ep), then query the new modem all the fields (ATI, ATI1…) are empty. If I try to connect I receive the message Dialing … but nothing happens. I placed some messages from dmesg, lspci and lsmod… hope it helps..

--- from dmesg ---
Intel536: no version magic, tainting kernel.
Intel536: module license 'Proprietary' taints kernel.
ACPI: PCI interrupt 0000:01:00.0[A] -> GSI 11 (level, low) -> IRQ 11
--- ### ---

--- from lspci ---
00:0b.0 Communication controller: Intel Corp. 536EP Data Fax Modem
--- ### ---

--- from lsmod ---
Module Size Used by
radeon 128484 2
Intel536 1076100 0
--- ### ---

Could you help me make the modem work?

You can't make it work.
Nobody can make it work if it don't go first time.

Give up and buy a serial HW modem - they always work.
(Search 536ep and 537ep in these forums if you don't believe me. I believe there are HCL entries to this effect too.)
