I have also the same problem
But I am uusing RH 8.0
The problem is that where can we find the most recent driver
These all drivers are compiled with gcc version 2
and we are using gcc version 3.2

just do insmod -f pctel & insmod -f ptserial
so no need to worry about different kernel versions

I have done these things but the module doesn't loaded
And the modem doesn't work. (the modules load with warning messages but did not work)

i cannot understand u r question.u r modules are loaded sucessfully with warnings.

what did u do next . please tell me and i will explain u what to do next

Thank you
When I typed the command

insmod -f pctel

The out put of this command came with warning messages which i have not remember. But it displays that the module are loaded sucessfully, after warning messages.
No what should I do?
Do you need that output messages?
I can post them.
After loading modules the kppp doesn,t connect to net. It first says that modem ready and after that it stop at "initializing modem"

what driver do you have...pctel-0.9.7-9 is the newest,avaliable here

In kppp,click configure and go to the device tab and make sure its on dev/modem.Im using these drivers on a 2.4 kernel with mandrake 10 with no probs.The modules will always load with warnings but should still work.

* will have to do insmod -f pctel and insmod -f ptserial everytime you reboot until you write a script to auto load modules at boot.

Thank you very much liljim
I was wrong at port becouse i set the modem port as ttyS1 or ttyS2, On ur advice I set it at /dev/modem and it is working now nicely.
thank u very much.
