USB setup

I'm running Linux-Mandrake 6.0 (kernel 2.2.9), and have on-mainboard USB ports.  I also have a USB modem that I want to use.  I've set everything in the BIOS that I can find to standardize the ports to ttyS0 and ttyS1.

Can someone explain, in plain english (or as near as the process will allow), the procedure I will need to go through to make sure that a) my USB ports are working in Linux, and b) that my modem is correctly set up?

Thank you.

USB is not supported in kernel 2.2

(well, in some cases mouse and keyboard works, but a modem is a total "forget it" for now)
