Modem problems

Here we go:

1. Mandrake lists my modem as a 56k SGS Thomson Microelectronics when it is infact a Aztech 56k USB using SmartLink technology. A thought, does the SoftModem mean software modem?

I then set Mandrake to look for the modem at dev/ttyS0. I then run a query modem and the following appears . This is using software flow control. This is what appears when I use hardware flow control. Notice the feedback on the Konsole.

I then try (on software flow control) to dial. It then stays this way for close to 3 min before I decide enough is enough and press cancel. What is happening here?

2. I then installed the SmartLink drivers from their site and followed the instructions for installation of the USB modem. The following error is then displayed.

When I build the RPMs and try to install the core driver, the following happens . I checked and although the USB driver is displayed in the pic I can confirm that the problem lies with the core driver.

Here is another error that appears and I have no idea what it relates to.
