Help using modem with linux (486/debian)

I can;t get my modem (internal) to be recognized, so I wen tout and bought an external modem - but I am having the same problem.  On boot up I see a message that no serial ports were enabled, and then I see a message which saya something about cua0, cua1, cua2 and some hex numbers, interrupts, and and some irqs. Then I also see some stuff about ttyS0, ttyS1, ttyS2 and som einterrupts, and some irqs.

I have minicom but have not been able to get it to do anything.  I am a linux/pc newbie and have no clue about the interrupt thing or irq thing, or much about linux either.

I'm pretty frustrated :(

Well, you external modem is connected to your comport N°2 and your mouse to the N°1. (As many usuals)
COM1 = ttyS0 = irq4 = 2f8
COM2 = ttyS1 = irq3 = 3f8
For minicom, you launch it, the type "CTRL + a" release then type "o", you'll be in the setup. go to the serial config and choose
/dev/ttyS1 for your external modem. Save your config and you're done. Have fun with your modem.
