    you'll need to find out the specific type (chipset) of your modem and look for it on the mandrake hardware compatability page. I would also suggest getting a more recent version of mandrake/mandriva as it may be more readily supported by a newer version.
    if your modem type is not in the list, it doesnot nessecarily mean its not supported.
    linux requires alot of patience and time at first, but keeping at it will pay off bigtime in the future.
    good luck
