Zoom USB ADSL Modem?

Hi I used to use Linux but I had to change my modem and I now have a Zoom 5510 -72 - 00 ADSL Modem but I have to use Windows and I hate it. says that ( has the drivers for my modem which will make it work under Linux but Im quite new to Linux so Im not sure as to which files I need from that site and what to do with them. If my modem is compatible I will be using Mandrake 9.2. Can anyone help me?

My advice: Take the modem back, and get yourself one with an ethernet connection. There is nothing wrong with zoom, but the USB connection is a pain.
I have installed 4 zoom modems (with ethernet) on various linux distributions without any problems at all.
