Ess Modem and Mandrake 8.1-Help!

I have a Ess 56k PCI modem(Chipset is ES2838S TeleDrive) in a Compaq Camaro MB(Mitac 5114vu).

The installation recognizes the modem and appears to install properly. When I try to connect I get " sorry, modem does not respond". When I reset modem I get "modem ready" but query returns the no response message.

It worked under Win98----.


Update:Tried to change Port assignments from /dev/modem to /dev/ttys2(com3) then back and now only get Modem busy.

Any one help??

New Update: I have found a driver that may fix it. I have it on floppy and it contains a text file "install": and the driver file"esscom.o" How do I do this install???????
