SuSe Modem Problem

ok here's what I have so far. I have a conexant hsf 56k/v92 modem and suse 9.0 which has kernel 2.4.21-99 athlon which I got from going to the terminal and typing in "uname -r" minus qoutes of course. I downloaded the proper driver from hxxp:// and burnt it to cd in windows useing nero which said it didn't notice it to be a windows file so wrote it in joilet mode or whatever. then I booted up suse and went to KDE 3.1 and opened cd and opened the files there, it didn't do much so I went into yast and installed it that way and it acted like it install but no confirmation so I tried K- something the rather, I know it was used to install drivers because it noticed it right away. anyways installed it again and this time it appeared to have installed it fine so I rebooted and still it hadn't notice my modem.

ok here's some additional info on the modem it came out of a dell computer orginally.... on the modem itself it says it's model:F-1156I/R2F, FCC part 68 reg no.: DK4MUL-47166-M5-N, AC REN.: 0.44B DOC REN:0.4, on the chipset itself it has this info Rs56-PCI, R6793-15, E189212.1, 0207 mexico. Like I said the chipset is a conexant. on the bottom of the modem it has some serial numbers if you need.

since im new to Linux, I do not know how to compile ,,any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thnx FP

I have had many a night trying to get a few old modems to work. They seemed to just not play the game.
Gave up in the end and just bought a V92 US Robotics one. Worked first time without doing anything to the modem.
I just tell customers when we change them to Linux (Suse) they need to buy a new modem, so I don't
end up playing with their old one for hours, and install a US Robotics one.
Good luck
