this is pretty simple :-
1. connect ur modem to the pc
2. run kppp if u have kde - in setup - modem - specify the port the modem is connected to.
3. query the modem.
P.S. :- theres no need to recompile kernel or load any modules - for this.

Read the ppp HOWTO. It will be in your doc directory. Or look for it at www.linuxdoc.org.
In brief, physically connect the modem. com1 is ttyS0, com2 is ttyS2. Just write the necessary scripts in /etc/ppp/
(if-up and if-down), configure your dialler and you are on.

If you have an external modem there is a chance to connect to the internet. Plug into your pc (watch out to the ports: if you have a PS/2 mouse, set yor modem to com1>ttyS0, if you have a com mouse, set your modem to com2>ttyS1), fire up Linux, "startx", go to start menu>sistem>control panel>modem configuration. Choose your modem (ttyS0/1) and click ok. Then go to start menu>internet>kppp and configure your connection. If you have problems surfing with Netscape, go to /etc/resolv.conf and edit it (ad your ISP nameserver/DNS; if you do not know the numbers call them and ask for them)
