Mandriva and usb IRDA

I have a Bafo BF-120 infrared IRDA...
I am trying to use it with my SonyEricsson T-610 that doesnt need any special software like nokias or i don;t know what else...
So its pretty straightforward that I have to configure my IRDA dongle.

I am running Mandriva LE2005 and Harddrake can find my BF120 under uknown /other

Vendor: ‎SigmaTel, Inc.

Description: ‎STIr4200 IrDA Bridge

Media class: ‎(Defined at Interface level)

Bus: ‎USB

Bus PCI #: ‎1

PCI device #: ‎2

Vendor ID: ‎1647

Device ID: ‎16896

Module: ‎stir4200

When I plugin the IRDA in the USB, dmesg command gives me this (dont know if this is any help)
usb 1-2: new full speed USB device using uhci_hcd and address 6
SigmaTel STIr4200 IRDA/USB found at address 6, Vendor: 66f, Product: 4200
drivers/net/irda/stir4200.c: IrDA: Registered SigmaTel device irda0

Now when I try to send something from my mobile phone, my mobile says No device Found

What should I configure on my System so that I can get the infrared to work?
