[hsflinux] My machine locks up when I try to install modem driver...

I'm pretty new to Linux, and have installed mandrake 10.1. I am on a Dell
Inspiron 5150 with a Conexant modem. I verified my kernel version by typing
uname -r per the instructions on the website, and downloaded the
188.8.131.52-12mdksmp driver file. When I try to install the .rpm via the
console, my machine totally locks up and I have to power down and boot in
again. If I click on the .rpm file to install, same results. I've tried also
running the cnxtinstall.run file. If I do this it says removing the driver
is necessary before installing it, so it makes me think that the driver was
installed by the .rpm. When it gets to the point of installing the driver
again after uninstalling it, it locks the machine again.
I am using Kppp to try to query the modem, /dev/modem (/dev/ttySHSF0 does
not exist in the list), but it says "unable to open modem". Thanks for any
