  1.After downloading the file, use WinZip to unzip the
file to a empty directory or blank floppy disk. (If you cannot locate the
file you downloaded, use the Windows Find command to search for the on your hard disk.)

  2.Refer to the readme.txt file included in the zip file for installation
instructions. (This file will be found in the folder you unzipped the
files to in step  #1) 

  except that about any Linux user would recommend to copy the downloaded
zip file to a floppy disk, start linux, login as root, copy the zip file
from the floppy disk with command mcopy .  and then use
unzip and refer to the readme.txt file etc... (you can
save the floppy disk job if you have a windows disk partition on your
Linux machine and know how to read from there, of course).

  How can we know without knowing which site you have visited and which
drivers you have seen ?????
  Since your modem is built around the PCTEL 1789 chipset, the right place
to learn more is, as shown in our HOWTO file,
  If you had looked there, starting as I recommended to you with reading, you would have seen that the driver which
you found on the Zoltrix site is included in the list of:

"Old, unsupported drivers, don't ask me questions about them".
