modem setup in Linux

About 2 months after getting my Red Hat (3.0.3) system up and running on a Linux-dedicated Pentium 75, I decided to install a modem.  It's a 14.4 Practical Peripherals modem (very nice modem, by the way).  

Anyway, I haven't a clue as to how to get Linux to recognize it.  I have already read the Serial HOWTO, but I'm still confused.  All of the /dev/cua's and /dev/ttys's exist on my system, but where do I go from here?  

Also, is there any way to test it without downloading Kermit or some other software?

Thanks for any help.

Try running minicom -s as root. Choose serial setup in the program and try to use the uca involved. If it works you arte usinf the right device file.
