Setting up modem

I have an internal modem and cannot get RedHat to work with it. It is on COM3 and I have used setserial to make sure irq and other settings are OK. What else can I try?

If you are certain it is on COM3, go into minicom, and try using /dev/cua2.. and then sending an ATZ or just AT to the modem. If it responds then it is working correctly. If this is a PnP modem, you may need to configure it beforehand using IsaPnpTools from SunSite. Also, you may wish to set a symlink from /dev/modem to /dev/cua2.. If this is a winmodem, I don't think it will work under linux, as I have yet to hear/see of any that do.

It is definitely on COM3 since its internal and COM1 and 2 are external. I have found out that it is plug n play so I would be grateful if you could expand just a little on this IsaPnpTools configuration. What or where is SunSite? I have also found a reference to some info on this at redhat.com/linux-info/pnp. Finally, I am told by my supplier that it is not a winmodem. Is there any way I can verify this without its documentaton (none available)?
Thanks for your help.

OK, I got the isapnptools but it seems like I need a phd in computer science to operate it. Can you offer me some advice on how to start with this?
