While inserting the modem module :

CODE
$ /sbin/modprobe sm56

Warning: loading /lib/modules/2.4.20-8/kernel/drivers/char/sm56.o will taint the kernel: non-GPL license - Proprietary

a tainted module isn't, in itself a problem ... it is just a warning that the module isn't open source. It should still load and work.

The fact that the module won't load is a problem. The one we need to solve smile.gif.

Are there any errors in dmesg:

dmesg | less

or in the syslog ...

less /var/log/messages

after the module fails to load?
