    U may download a utility called as scanModem and then find out the exact details for your modem. Probably later u may be able to find an appropriate driver for it.

    here's where u can get scanModem

    here is your problem's answer

    you can get the drivers on linuxant site there are two type of drivers HCF and HSF download both drivers and install HSF first and then do the following:-

    to setup your modem, please enter the following in the xterminal

    exec setserial /dev/ttyS2 (replace the S2 by your port) irq 5 (replace the irq 5 by the irq number of your modem) port 0xc000 (replace the 0xc000 by the I/O of your modem) ^fourport ^auto_irq skip_test autoconfig spd_vhi

    reopen the xterminal again and enter
    setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 5 port 0xc000 autoconfig
    (replace the S2, irq 5, and the 0xc000 by the one of your modem; notice the 0xc000 are zeros not oh)
    enter
    ln /dev/ttyS2 (replace S2 again)
    /dev/modem

    please read the message first; now this is the modem command all together.

    exec setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 5 port 0xc000 ^fourport ^auto_irq skip_test autoconfig spd_vhi
    open the xterminal again and enter

    setserial /dev/ttyS2 irq 5 port 0xc000 autoconfig
    ln /dev/ttyS2 /dev/modem
    have fun

    use the commands "dmesg" and "lspci" to if you need to find the information on your modem that you'll need to run setserial.

    When I ran those, I found my modem is on ttyS14, which Debian didn't make by default.

    If you have a similar situation, run

    cd /dev
    ./MAKEDEV ttyS14 (replace with correct device name)

    And that will make your block device if it didn't exist before.
