Question associate /mnt/modem to /dev/ttyhcf0?

I just installed 9.2 and the free hcf rpm. The install went fine, but it did not creat the modem folder under /mnt. After creating this folder myself, how do I associate it to the right driver thing. Would it be, ttyhcf0 or something similiar?

I also tried the hcfconfig command, but it said file unkown or something, I closed the original shell before issuing the command. Would that matter. I couldn't find where the rpm went to with make install, so I just did it from the same folder as the rpm.

Any thoughts.
BTW, it's an Aopen FM56-PX modem....Another thought whats a program that would check to see if the modem actually runs, but not necessarily connect to the net?

Try looking for /dev/modem - for a modem it would normally create a block device under /dev

After installing, depending on the driver you used, you might have to run hcfpciconfig from a terminal window(as root/su). The you should be able to open kppp or whatever ppp utility you happen to use and all should be well. If the modem doesn't dial out with /dev/modem selected, try /dev/hcftty0 or similar.

I guess that I don't need /mnt/modem. I didn't mess with anything except for minicom. Mandrake control center can't find my modem and it just hangs on "net_monitor" in the shell...

Alright, so I used minicom as su, with /dev/ttySHCF0 as the serial or whatever. By typing the "at" command I got "ok", meaning that the modem is hooked up. I was able to get my regular phone to ring; evidently it works properly.

I then tried to connect to my isp and I had this on the screen...

I was connected for around 5-10 seconds and then recieved the output at the very bottom. It must be some kind of setting inside minicom, but I have no idea what it would be.

Does anyone know what this means and/or how to fix it?
