IPCOP modem installation!

Please can anyone tell me how to setup my modem in IPCOP,
I got a modem model: Motorla 56k SM56, i downloaded the drivers for linux in RPM.
But how do i install this driver in the IPCOP, i tried to mount from a floppy disk but i get a rejection, why is that, is there any other way to do it.
Even i tried from CDROM, but all it says ":FS not supported by kernel", so what should i do?
If any of you guys, has IPCOP, and has installed a modem to there.
Could please tell me all the steps to get it up and running??
or an email address to keep in touch.
Thanx for that.

I've got IPCop 1.3 running on and old P100, using a 33.6 Netcomm Roadster.
After telling it not to use DSL etc, it just configured itself for the modem, no drivers needed.
Modems will (or should) work with a "standard" driver.
Under Windows, you can run any modem with a standard driver, instead of the one that comes with the modem - if you can't, you should dump the modem (ie it'll be non standard).
As for getting an RPM for the modem, IPCop is a very stripped version of RedHat, and pretty much everything is delivered with it, so I don't think you'll be able to do much with it.
I might also be wrong ;P
I've been running IPCop from about February, and it's great - install was minimal, and now I just turn it on and leave it alone.
