Unhappy supramax modem with mandrake

Hi folks!

I just recently installed Mandrake Linux 8.2 as a dual boot with Windows 98SE. The computer has a Celeron CPU and a SupraMax 56i Voice PCI V.92 modem.
Here are some of the windows settings:
The modem is on COM3
flow control setting is RTS/CTS
Databits 8
Parity none
stopbits 1
Max speed 11520

In the KDE gui I found KPPP to set up the modem, the help facility was good and I set everything up but still get no responce from the modem.

What must I do to get on line with this modem?

Have you got support for your modem in your kernel or as a loadable module? - did you manage to dial in and then encounter probs?

Not sure what you mean by support.

In KPPP setup, I have tried /dev/modem, /dev/ttyS0, /dev/ttyS1
wit XON/XOFF and KPPP sayes modem ready then initializes it. There is no OK response from the modem and when I query the modem in KPPP the ATIs all come up blank. If I try /dev/ttyS2 or anything else or CRTSCTS I get a modem does not respond message.

Thanks for your help.
