URGENT- Toshiba TE2000 modem driver problem

Hello Everyione,
I have Toshiba Satellite Pro TE2000 Laptop. I installed Fedora Core 2 in my computer. It didn't recognise the modem then I tried to install slmodem- 2.9.9 / 2.7.9 but I couldn't get it work. I run the scanModem and this is the output of the

The most recent update of scanModem accessed at http://linmodems.technion.ac.il/packages/scanModem.gz should ALWAYS be used!! Current UPDATE=2004_Sept_27 URLs to cogent advice are regularly entered and updated, and your problem may be solved therein. If further help is needed, send a description of your problem to: discuss linmodems org with this ModemData.txt Attached, using the following in the email Subject Line: scanModem, redhat kernel 2.6.5-1.358 Always send this ENTIRE Modem/ModemData.txt. It includes subtle diagnostic ouputs needed to best guide you. If your PC is a laptop, please provide Make and Modem information.

--------------  System information ------------------------
redhat Fedora Core release 2 (Tettnang)
on System with processor: i686
supported by kernel:      2.6.5-1.358

The kernel-2.6.5-1.358 was compiled with CONFIG_REGPARM, providing more
compact and faster code.

assembled with compiler:  3.3.3
with current System compiler GCC=3.3.3
Modem symbolic link is:  /dev/modem -> /dev/ttySL0
----active COMM services are ------------
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr 00:A0:D1:D0:AA:BF
        inet6 addr: fe80::2a0:d1ff:fed0:aabf/64 Scope:Link
This COMM mode should be closed before using the modem, or DNS services
may fail.

Under 2.6.n kernels, there is currently modem support by:
      the more expensive Controller chipset modems using the open source
serial code
Conexant software downloaded through http://www.linuxant.com
      SmartLink slmodem drivers, including USB hardware
      USB modems using the Open Source acm.ko driver
      Lucent DSP (digital signal processing) chipsets but NOT:
      soft modems ( though some are supported by slmodem drivers)
      Intel 536EP and 537 modems
For all other modems, support projections are not available as of this

PPP support module  bsd_comp.ko  not found!
Resident PPP support modules are properly uncompressed .
======= Fedora code changes =======
SmartLink slmodem-2.9.n, Lucent/Agere DSP,  Intel 536ep and 537 drivers
are already Fedora competent.  For usage of winmodems with the
kernel-2.4.nn Fedora releases   a change in the serial-like driver code
of WinModems  is necessary.
See for guidance: http://hepunx.rl.ac.uk/~wmurray/pctel/pctel.html
Basically , the line:
   if ((tty->count == 1) && (state->count != 1)) {
should be changed into:
   if (atomic_read(&tty->count) == 1 && state->count != 1) {
This works in the ltmodem code too. See
An error about "rs_close" during compiling is a signature that the
fedora fix is needed

Beginning with Fedora 2  kernel-2.6.6-1.427, kernel-headers needed for
compiling drivers are provide at: /lib/modules/kernel-version/build/
Thus upgrading above kernel 2.6.5-1.358 to 2.6.6-* is Stongly
redhat is not yet providing pre-compiled drivers for WinModems

An AC97 modem codec was not detected

A modem was not detected among the above PCI devices. This indicates that the modem, if present has a non-standard or ISA bridge. Please follow the directions in Modem/General.txt for identifying the modem properties when booting under Microsoft Windows. Also access any documentation sources on yourchipset. Guidance can only be provided AFTER the chipset and/or its drivers have been identified.

If a PCMCIA modem is currently inserted and the sockets activated by
  /etc/init.d/pcmcia start
then the PCMCIA bridge is NOT transparent.

If the modem is known to have a Lucent digital signal processing
then PCMCIA.tar.gz variant assembled by Joern Wustenfeld is necessary,
rather than the standard ltmodem-8.26a9.tar.gz at

The current modem symbolic link is: /dev/modem -> /dev/ttySL0
The ports /dev/ttyS0 or 1,2,3 are for standard Controller chip modems

Here I am having trouble, I don't really know the reason.
Help me please..

I also created that symbolic link by the folloving code

[root mail sbin]# ln -s /dev/ttySL0 /dev/modem

So that is the story, have a look and please let me know what I am
doing wrong and what should I do to fix it up.
Thank you for your time.
