modem really doesnot need specicial configuration since serial device support is there in the kernel. If it is under com1 under DOS/win95, then it is /dev/ttyS0 under Linux.
you can use 'minicom' to test if your modem works (winmodem wil not work. Ifyou have external modem, then that's great), then you can use 'kppp' or whatever to setup dial-up to your isp.

sound needs adding support to the kernel. compile in sound support and various snd card driver as modules, then try to use 'sndconfig' to configure it.
