I would try installing the modem as a standard modem, then go into Control Panel/modems/diagnostics, run it and see if it offers any kind of ID

Standard modem probably will work. Do you get a yellow mark in Device Manager when you install the modem? Is the modem recognized there as anything?
The FCC# you gave is aa regisration number, do you see a FCC ID #?

There is NO FCC # on the board. I tried to install modem as a 56k stsandard. There is No 56k standard under win 95b. so I put it in as  a 28.8
 
there are no 'yellow' marks in the control panel for the modem.
so how can I get this modem to its designed 56k???????

Try running the diagnostics tool and choose More Info and see what it sends back. If we can determine the chipset we can probably get a driver that will work. Look at the modem and see if you see a name on the chips. Like Lucent,Rockwell etc
