Problem with Speedtouch 330 modem & drivers

Hi, I'm a total newb when it comes to Linux- I only installed the Ubuntu distro yesterday.

Since then I've been trying to get my modem to work- I have a Speedtouch 330 modem. I've downloaded the firmware and the driver from SourceForge but it doesn't seem to work.

Everything goes OK until the last stage- I don't know whether the firmware has been installed or not and the howto is a bit too technical for me to comprehend. I type in the modem_run command to upload the firmware as printed in the Howto but nothing seems to happen- no report saying it's worked or not. Assuming it's worked I type in "pppd call adsl updetach" and it produces a few lines of weird symbols like {`]]. When I type in "ifconfig ppp0" I reports that it could not find the device.

I'm totally at a loss, not to mention the end of my tether- I'd be really grateful if someone could spare a few moments to help me on this.
