How to uninstall zaptel, libpri and asterisk from fedora

hi to all.
i am newbie to asterisk and want to configure fxo card.
i have a system that contains fedora and the main three packages are
installed on it (asterisk libpri and zaptel) and also 1 fxo card.
i want to remove these packages and to install all of them from scratch
then what packages and modules are necessarily rewuired to configure fxo card.
on current system when i type the command
#modprobe zaptel

it gives me this output

FATAL: module zaptel not found.

i need your assistance
kind regards

To uninstall a package try the following command.

#rpm -e


To remove libpri-1.4.1-1 from fedora try the following command

#rpm -e libpri-1.4.1-1

Note: To implement above things u should have root permissions.
