Compaq Armada E500 WinModem/SUSE

Hi all,
I know this is a common problem judging from how many posts I have read to try to resolve this but this situation seems rather 'special'.I am posting here as a last resort if anyone can help please do is most appreciated.
Anyways, I have a Compaq Armada E500 laptop and have recently installed Suse Linux 9.1 Personal. I installed the ltmodem latest build rpm using Yast(which simplifies things). However, the Linux kernel is not detecting or interfacing with the modem. I ran modem scan from and it is supported(a Lucent WinModem chipset clone). However, the modem is built into the Intel Pro 100 ethernet interface and has an IRQ of 11. I tried using all of the device names ie LT0,ttyS1-3 etc and the system will still not even get an 'OK' from an 'ATZ' string.

Please help I am at my wits end and really want to get it working. I am connecting to a broadband connection through the network card currently(non DHCP) via ICS on a Windows machine. But I need to use the modem after hours so please help if you can anybody.
