Linux Mandrake 6.0 modem trouble...

I have a Diamond SupraMAX PCI Voice 56k modem.  My modem works fine in Win98SE.  The problem im having is when i try to use it in linux, (kpppd) says Sorry the modem is busy.  I installed the modem with "netcfg" and used modem tool to configure the right comm port (com3)  whats wrong???

OK your problem is that the modem is a software modem(winmodem).  Linux has no support for software modems.

OK does the modem have jumpers?  Assuming it does then you can set it to com2 and disable the searil port2 in the bios and then it should work
