    I assuming that your modem is an internal PCI modem, in which case you're into the wonderful world of LINMODEMs (that's the Linux version of Winmodems).

    Have a look at the site http://www.linmodems.org .

    I have a Lucent chipped internal modem and have to install (using RPM) a driver which I get from a nice man in Germany. These particular drivers are keyed into the kernel version that I'm running, so you may have to do something similar (press Ctrl Alt F1 to get a text screen that will show you the kernel version - then Ctrl Alt F7 to jump back to the pretty gui).

    hope that this helps
