    Your external mo9dem, if it plugsw inbto your serial (Com1,2,3...) port, will appear as /dev/ttyS0,1,2,3... (ie. the number after ttyS is one less than the corresponding Windows Com port). You can, if you wish, re-create the symbolic link from /dev/modem to the relevant /dev/ttySn (where the n is the number it takes on your PC).

    If you plug your external modem into a USB port, then I'm afraid that I can't help you.

    As to the internal modem driver. It should make no difference whatsoever (famous last words). All the driver does is take a feed from a PCI card and present it to Linux in the same fashion as a "normal" serial socket/plug.

    have fun

    that's right. Change the kppp modem device to the /dev/ttySn (where the n is replaced by the number (counting from zero) that corresponds to the serial port that you plug the external modem into (so, if you only have a single serial port, this will be known as /dev/ttyS0 , or Com1 in Window-speak).

    hope this explains.
