What type of modem is it ? If you are using a Winmodem or Mwave modem then you are out of luck (Wish I had known that sooner !!)

5timeluck: please post the exact model of your modem like Stevie_emwsys says and  tell us the IRQ/COM used by your modem (do setserial -a /dev/ttySX  where X is your modem port ie: com1 is ttyS1 )
