Problem in installtion MODEM Driver (SUSE 9.1 personal)

I am very new to linux:
First time I installed the suse 9.1 personal.
I liked its appearence and media.
First I stuck with dual boot problem but with help on forum I overcome it.
Now I can use computer in terminal mode and also work in root.
I is very exciting to learn it.
Till now I can install one RPM file.

I want to use internet in Linux environment.
SUSE 9.1 personal detected the modem but unable to install the driver, I have winmodem -- pctel(HSP modem).
When i am going to run or, its all open in text mode. I have no idea to complie or run this file and make driver work.
Is any external complier can compile these file in SUSE 9.1 personal
lets me get out of problem, so i can enjoy internet with linux.

For the quick and easy way to install from source:
tar -zxvf <filename>.tar.gz
cd <filename>
make install
Just make sure to read any README or INSTALL files first. And to get drivers for most "winmodems", surf over to

If it's an rpm you're trying to install, try this
rpm -Uvh <filename>.rpm
