    The majority of drivers for Linux are found within the kernel. What kind of drivers are you looking for?

    If it's a winmodem, you might look here for ways to make it work:

    Alternatively, buy a real modem. Winmodems are software based, and hence, they will not work without a driver, and they will waste uselesly your cpu power as well (because again, all the work is done via software).

    A real modem doesn't need a driver. For example, if you use a com port modem you just need the driver for the com port (that's no problem).

    EDITED: All of this applies only if it's a winmodem.
