Let's see if we can get you going at all....
For the moment, forget the kernel upgrade since you seem to be stuck on
I am going to assume you don't know how to install the rpm. If you do,
please accept my apologies. I really don't know where you stand. Open
a terminal window (command prompt). Become root with the command:
Enter your root password. If the floppy disk is in the drive go ahead
and mount it.
Next copy the rpm to your home directory.
cp /mnt/floppy/* .
Install the rpm:
rpm -ivh <name of file here>
That will install the Mandrake RPMs for your modem. You can then test
to see if it works.
I hope this helps.
