Linux and External US ROBOTICS SPORSTER

I cannot seem to get my external modem to work with Linux.  I have Mandrake 7.0, running Gnome.  I have an external US Robotics Sporster 56k.  I set up a PPP, and Linux seems to initialize the modem (I hear sounds), but is unable to dial.  When I do a statserial /dev/cua0, it lists that the modem is there.  Please help............

I believe it is a winmodem. As far as I know it won't work in linux because you need software to use a winmodem.
