try using xf86config instead of Xconfigurator...
also try "X --probeonly > /tmp/log 2>&1"  and post you think is relevant form /tmp/log...

Good luck

login as root, then in the shell type:

   X --probeonly > /tmp/log 2>&1
   more /tmp/log
   xf86config

to setup a modem just make sure you have the modem connected right then issue
man minicom
